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.

See news about Lobby Day in Washington, D.C. More than 700 AAUW members stormed Congress for the 2017 AAUW Capitol Hill Lobby Day to tell their senators and representatives to protect and strengthen Title IX and to tackle the country’s student debt burden which disproportionately impacts women. From Alaska to Arkansas, California to Connecticut, Nebraska to New York, AAUW members were pumped and ready to take the fight for gender equity directly to Capitol Hill.
