Greetings from the President
Welcome to AAUW Missouri. We are changing the climate for women and girls in Missouri.
Visit and then join a branch to participate in the activities that are “breaking through barriers for women and girls!”
~~Jan Scott, AAUW Missouri President
AAUW Mission: AAUW advances equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research.
AAUW Value Promise: By joining AAUW, we belong to a community that breaks through educational and economic barriers so that all women and girls have a fair chance.
When women vote we change the conversation. AAUW has a long history of holding their legislators accountable for how they vote on AAUW priority issues.
AAUW is non-partisan. We do not support any candidate or party but we do follow the issues important to women and girls and families. Click on the “advocate” tab for important information.
