The 2017 Women’s March signaled a new day in women’s activism, turning out millions of women across the country and the globe. Building on that momentum, this year’s march did not disappoint, reflecting persistent urgency to change the political climate for all women and girls.
Coverage of the movement points to the need for systemic change, especially in the wake of revelations last fall regarding numerous, high profile criminal sexual misconduct cases affecting women in professional environments and in women’s sports.
That’s where you come in. We are making the AAUW difference, by convening women across generations, demographic groups and professions on issues that matter.
This year’s convention zeroes in on the inspiration, tools and opportunities related to making that change in our communities and across the state on behalf of women and girls.
