Looking for an organization that cares about the same issues as you do? Do you believe in equal pay for equal work? Advancing education for women and girls? Then AAUW is for you!
AAUW of Murfreesboro is a company of college-educated individuals from all walks of life who share a common purpose—To work toward equity for women and girls in education and in the workplace. We are part of a national and state network that makes a difference both locally and nationally.

Our mother organization in Washington, D. C. (200,000 members strong) is a powerful voice on women’s issues (http://www.aauw.org/ ). Our Tennessee organization (http://aauw-tn.aauw.net/) supports legislation in the General Assembly that will make positive changes for women in the workplace.

AAUW of Murfreesboro meets monthly—September through May, excluding January—on the second Thursday of the month, 5:00 to 7:00 PM. At these meetings, we learn about women’s issues, plan activities to advance women and girls, and share a meal. We make lifelong friends, have fun, and enjoy good eats!

We welcome members from all professions and businesses who care about equity for women and girls in education and in the workplace. The only requirement for membership is a college degree, including an associate’s degree.

Our activities include raising funds for local and national scholarships and for legal advocacy for women and educating the public about the pay gap for women and lobbying for paycheck fairness. We also partner with other community organizations to create opportunities for women and girls, such as co-sponsoring “Expanding Your Horizons,” the science and mathematics conference for middle school girls, and adopting the Rutherford County Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Program.

For more information, contact Dia Cirillo, aauwboropresident@gmail.com. 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.
