Review for AAUW, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

For more than 130 years, AAUW has put women and children first. AAUW works for equity for all - but especially for women and girls. Currently AAUW is leading the charge for Pay Equity. With the passage of the LIly Ledbetter Act with AAUW's help, the push is now on to raise the standard of living for women so women get more than 77 cents for every dollar made by a man. Raising that level of equity will impact ALL families nationwide - and what a simple solution to making things better for the American family. AAUW and its 150,000 members deserve our support of their mission - now and always!

Review for AAUW, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

For more than 130 years, AAUW has fought for the rights of women and girls. Whether developing the kindergarten system, marching for equal and reproductive rights, working to protect injustices in higher education and many more causes, AAUW has always been at the forefront of actions that make a difference.

Whether providing fellowships for advanced education or for research grants, AAUW promotes equality in education for all. Members raise more than $3 million annually to support the endowments and grants programs. The Legal Advocacy Fund of AAUW provides case-support for women who are involved in litigation in higher education programs nationwide.

Almost 100,000 members work not only at the national level but at the local level on projects and programs that benefit the lives of women, girls and families.

This is an outstanding organization that has a history of "putting its money where the need is" when it comes to issues affecting women and girls.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have personally heard from women supported by AAUW with fellowships, grants or case support. When one hears these women's stories and learns about how they have used the support of AAUW to change lives in their own communities, one knows that AAUW is truly effective.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Encourage more people to donate to support the causes that reach women, girls and families.
