AAUW has been empowering women as individuals and as a community since 1881 when 13 college graduates gathered to find a way to help other women. For more than 130 years, we have worked together as a grassroots organization to improve the lives of millions of women and their families. AAUW develops, disseminates, and sustains programs that advance equity for women and girls, programs such as $tart $mart, Tech Trek, ElectHer, Tech Savvy, and Legal Advocacy.
