Welcome to the Murfreesboro, TN Branch of AAUW!

AAUW is a company of college-educated individuals from all walks of life who share a vision in advancing education for women and girls, by being part of a network that makes a difference both locally and nationally . Be part of a powerful voice on women’s issues. At our monthly meetings, September through May, we invite you to make lifelong friends, have fun, and enjoy good eats!

We are the local branch of a national organization dedicated to advancing educational equity for women and girls, sponsoring research by and about women and girls, and acting as advocates for women in the legal and political spheres.  We welcome members from all professions and businesses who care about education for women and girls. The only requirement for membership is a college degree, including an associate’s degree.

We meet the second Thursday of each month, 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. At meetings we share a meal, listen to a speaker address issues important to women, and hold a business meeting.

Our activities include raising funds for local and national scholarships.  We also cooperate with other community organizations to create opportunities for girls including “Expanding Your Horizons,” the science and mathematics fair for middle school girls.

For more information, contact Ayne Cantrell, acantrell@comcast.net.  In principle and in practice, AAUW values and seeks a diverse membership.  There shall be no barriers to full participation in this organization on the basis of gender, race, creed, age, sexual orientation, national origin or disability.
