Review for AAUW, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I joined AAUW in 1974 when I returned to my alma mater as a professor in the English Department. I was mentored by Dr. Lucille Griffith, who had been mentored and was a personal friend of Dr. Hallie Farmer, who had been a professor at Montevallo for 30 years. Hallie Farmer is my hero; her courage, her passion for promoting civil rights, equal rights, fairness in society has been my inspiration. My goal has been to continue the fight that Hallie Farmer began on a small, liberal arts campus in central Alabama and continued successfully in Washington with AAUW. With her as a model, I have become an activist in public policy, at the local, state, and national levels. In my role as a teacher, I have tried to encourage young women, students and professionals, to become involved in politics, in public service, in AAUW. No other organization provides as much leadership--in its research in women's issues, in its advocacy in government, in its support of educational fellowships, in its legal advocacy for change. I am proud to have AAUW as a major part of my professional and personal resume.
