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.
WHAT YOU CAN DO NOW!
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. AAUW National has sent us three documents to share with AAUW MO members-the Missouri Governor Voter Guide, the Missouri Senate Voter Guide and the AAUW Voter Issue Guide. The Governor and Senate guides were specifically prepared for our state at the request of Karen and Pat. The Voter Issue Guide has questions that you can ask candidates about AAUW priority issues. Use the links to access your own copies!
AAUW celebrated the centennial of the Saint Louis Suffragists of 1916 and honored the women of today by joining with other women’s organizations in the Celebrate the Vote Festival at the St. Louis Public Library on September 3 from 10 AM to 2 PM. View Pictures and narrative from this event.
