The strength of AAUW is its mission, not the background of individual members. When ALL who share the mission work together, we will be a better organization. The time for focusing on the individual letters in our name is long past – we allow men to join. We should not create or maintain barriers for the involvement of any woman who supports our mission and wants to contribute toward our goals.
