Welcome to the Green Valley AAUW branch!

 AAUW (American Association of University Women) has been empowering women since 1881.  AAUW is a nationwide network of more than 100,000 members and donors, 1,000 branches, and 500 college/university partners. Since its founding, AAUW members have examined and taken positions on the fundamental issues of the day – educational, social, economic, and political. Our commitment to our mission is reflected in all aspects of our work.
