I have been a member of the American Association for University Women (AAUW) for eight years. AAUW has been serving women for over 100 years in the US. AAUW was one of the main supporters of the effort to get women the right to vote in 1917. AAUW was a central player in getting Title IV passed so that everyone, including women, had access to all public educational opportunities, including athletics. AAUUW has worked faithfully for years for equal pay for women in the workplace, despite many roadblocks. AAUW has a legal defense fund to support women who are challenging the "system" regarding discrimination based on gender. AAUW provides scholarships for women of other countries as well as American women to pursue areas of study related to women's rights and self-sufficiency. The money for the legal defense fund + the scholarships comes from members and others interested in supporting the causes that AAUW promotes, based on their mission statement.
