AAUW advances equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy and research. That is the mission of AAUW. My branch happens to encourage girls in science and other STEM fields. The advocacy piece is accomplished by working on legislation such as Title IX. The branch is presently giving toward an endowment to fund a fellowship for women to complete their Phd's. We have almost completed the Tacoma Centennial fund of AAUW #4275.
