About AAUW San Diego
If you believe in equity for women and girls – in women being able to live a self-determined life – whether on campus, at work, or during retirement, then AAUW San Diego is for you. If you would like camaraderie, intellectual stimulation and the company of women who make a difference, then you will find yourself very much at home with AAUW San Diego.
Equity means freedom from bias or favoritism and includes the quality of being fair or impartial. AAUW San Diego, in coordination with AAUW California and AAUW national, advances equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, research and philanthropy.

(Any eligible individual can join AAUW San Diego; however, membership in one of the other AAUW San Diego County branches may be more geographically convenient.)

AAUW San Diego is a tax-exempt not-for-profit 501(C)3 organization
AAUW has been empowering women as individuals and as a community for more than 130 years, we have worked together as a national grassroots organization to improve the lives of millions of women and their families.
AAUW’s story begins in 1881, when a small group of female college graduates banded together to open the doors for women’s career advancement and to encourage more women to pursue higher education.
We are tenacious and trailblazing — advocating for women and girls into the future!
