AAUW has been a big part of my life, from when I was a young mom in a new city searching for intellectual stimulation to now when community and issue involvement is important to me. I am so impressed by AAUW members I have met across the country and their work for equity and education for women and girls. This is a real community of women and men with goals to improve our society, and AAUW's outstanding research provides an scientific basis for the actions we take.
