AAUW’s Mission

AAUW advances equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research.

AAUW’s Value Promise

By joining AAUW, you belong to a community that breaks through educational and economic barriers so that all women have a fair chance. 

AAUW Public Policy

THE PUBLIC POLICY PRIORITIES underscore AAUW’s mission of advancing equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research and speak to women’s needs, aspirations, and concerns across the life span. The work of AAUW builds upon more than 130 years of responsible public participation, and the following principles provide a basis for AAUW members’ actions at the local, state, national, and international levels. Implicit in each of our principles is support for government agencies administering
programs, including adequate appropriations, effective and accountable administration, and provision for citizen participation.
We advocate public discussion to ensure enlightened decisions on these principles. We work to increase the number of women and other underrepresented populations in policy- and other decision-making positions. AAUW is committed to working in collaboration with diverse allies and coalitions to break through educational and economic barriers for women and girls.               2017-2019-Public Policy Program
