About Us

AAUW Tucson proudly celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2010

Back in the early 1890’s, Tucson was a small cow town. Founding members of what was to become the Tucson Branch of AAUW rallied around important health issues. They promoted getting milk pasteurized and nagged men to spit in spittoons and not on the walkways. They set goals we still adhere to today — leading in matters of women’s equality, supporting Tucson families and our community, and educating our children and ourselves.

The Tucson Branch of AAUW has created scholarships and grants to support women in continuing their education. We support STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math), literacy in our community, and, address the dearth of female candidates for state and national legislation through the Running and Winning Project. Our commitment to lifelong learning is evident through our luncheon speakers, book groups and our association with the political discussion group, Great Decisions.
