Do you meet one or more of the following points?
- Are you a busy woman or man who want to belong to a branch, but has limited time to attend meetings in person?
- Do you want to support AAUW’s local efforts in Maryland?
- Do you want to connect with interesting AAUW members across Maryland?
Then the AAUW Maryland On-Line Community is for you.
The AAUW Maryland On-Line Community is one of the newest branches (established in 2016) of the American Association of University Women (AAUW). We advance equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research. AAUW is the nation’s leading voice promoting equity and education for women and girls. Since our founding in 1881, AAUW members have examined and taken positions on the fundamental issues of the day — educational, social, economic, and political.
This new branch provides a different kind of community for those National Members. Those in areas of the state where there is no location-based branch and those for whom location-based branches are not a good “fit” are invited to join the AAUW Maryland On-Line Community which serves the entire state of North Carolina.
As a member, you will get copies of the AAUW Maryland newsletters – the Marylander – and be “in the loop” on AAUW issues affecting the state. You’ll also be connected to the national AAUW community and receive all the benefits of belonging to that powerful network.
States Notch Multiple Equal Pay Victories in 2017
Voters are fed up with the persistent gender pay gap, and many state legislators are listening. In 2015 and 2016 dozens of legislatures proposed and enacted bills and laws addressing pay inequality. In 2017 a whopping 42 states, plus Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C., offered legislative solutions to the gender pay gap. While not all of these bills passed, this growing activity shows that red, blue, and purple states realize that the pay gap is real and that something needs to be done about it.
