Stand with Us!

Since its founding in 1881, the American Association of the University Women has been the nation’s leading voice promoting education and equity for women and girls.  With more than 170,000 members and supporters, 1,000 branches, and 800 college/university institution partners, AAUW continues its strong advocacy for women.

AAUW in California began in 1885 when women in San Francisco organized as the Pacific Coast Collegiate Alumnae.

The AAUW Funds is our foundation which supports Tech Trek, research, community projects, fellowships, and grants for outstanding women and girls. The Legal Advocacy programs provide support for women seeking judicial redress for sex discrimination in the work place.

The Berkeley Branch

The Berkeley Branch was chartered in 1923 as the East Bay Branch.   Our activities are linked to the AAUW mission.  AAUW advances equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research.
