Glimpses from the 2017 Women’s March
January 24, 2017
On January 21, 2017, at least half a million people descended upon Washington, D.C., to march for gender equality. Millions more joined in sister marches across the United States and around the world. Never content to sit out history, AAUW members were right there front and center. AAUW staff, members, and supporters marched to make their voices heard in our nation’s capital and across the country. The AAUW delegation came to D.C. by bus, plane, train, and automobile. All came with the same goal: to proclaim that women’s rights are human rights.
In addition to sharing chants and signs, members raised their voices through local and national media outlets to get out the message that AAUW stands up for equality and civil rights of all Americans.
As a nonpartisan organization, AAUW marched to remind elected officials that women are watching and will make their voices heard on any action (or inaction) on women’s issues. Now that the march is over, take the next step with AAUW. And remember to check out AAUW’s Facebook page to see even more highlights from marches across the country!

Latest AAUW Report
Why do men still vastly outnumber women in leadership positions? AAUW’s newest research report, Barriers and Bias: The Status of Women in Leadership, explores this question, drawing from scholarly research and paying special attention to stereotypes and bias. The report provides recommendations for individuals and those in the education, corporate, and political sectors to contribute to an environment in which gender is no longer a barrier to leadership.
Our branch serves Orinda, Moraga, and Lafayette, small California towns nestled in rolling hills about 15 miles east of San Francisco. We have much to offer our members, including activities, events, interest groups, and educational opportunities.
The American Association of University Women is a national organization that advances equity for women through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research. AAUW has more than 170,000 members and supporters in 1000 branches across the United States and 800 college/university members. It lobbies and advocates for education and equity for women and girls. Our commitment to these issues is reflected by the AAUW public policy program and our support for AAUW Funds. Read more about AAUW Funds.
