The American Association of University Women (AAUW) is a non-profit, non-partisan organization that works to champion equity for women and girls. Since 1881, we have been a catalyst for positive change, from boosting young women’s access to education, to shaping public policy and producing groundbreaking research on gender equity. The Middletown Branch has been at the forefront of our community’s educational and cultural life since 1925.
Today, AAUW is guided by a bold, new vision: to ensure equity for all by focusing on the three critical areas where we can make the biggest difference in the lives of women and girls — education and training, economic security, and leadership.
At AAUW, we’ve committed to reaching 10 million women to negotiate fair and equitable salaries and benefits by 2022, and end the gender pay gap by 2030. AAUW is working nationally and locally on enhancing policies and laws, working with employers to improve practices, and training women in effective salary negotiation.
