A Message from Linda. Hallman, CAE
AAUW Chief Executive Officer

Women and girls should be better represented in STEM!


Please demonstrate your support for AAUW and our campaign to promote STEM education and careers for girls and young women around the nation. Your positive feedback will greatly aid AAUW’s efforts.

Women have been underrepresented in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields for far too long.

That’s why AAUW is leveling the playing field by helping girls break through the barriers that stand in their way. Every year, we reach out to thousands of girls to encourage their enthusiasm. Our local branch sponsors a STEM event every year in the fall or spring for young female students in  middle-school.
