AAUW not only offers timely information about legislation, reports, articles, votes, topics of debate, and information in the news...the organization gives members and the general public a swift path to action. Want to know the latest about Supreme Court nominee Kagen, the report on Women in Science, an upcoming House bill, pay equity, international incidents, or the simply get inspired by women making a difference - AAUW fits the bill.

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.
