AAUW is the oldest and largest national organization for women. It was founded in Boston in 1881 so women college graduates could join together in advancing equity for women in education and employment.
AAUW Seattle Branch started in 1904.
Headquartered in Washington, D.C., and with a total of 100,000 members, AAUW has over 1000 branches nationwide. The Seattle branch was organized in 1904.

Annual Branch Meeting with Author Elise Hooper
Due to Governor Inslee’s stay-at-home order for Washington and the uncertainty of when it again will be safe to congregate, we have canceled the May 16th Branch meeting. This is normally when we would hold our annual business meeting and elect officers, in addition to having a program. Our planned speaker was author Elise Hooper, who wrote The Other Alcott and Learning to See, An Historical Novel about Dorothea Lange. If you’re looking for something to read while staying at home, these might be worth a try. We hope to have her as a speaker next year.
Election of Officers via Survey Monkey
We will have our elections via Survey Monkey, so be on the lookout for an email in early May so you can vote to elect our candidates for Vice President of Finance and Vice President of Membership. Below are the open positions and candidates identified by the Nominating Committee. See the May Catalyst for candidate information.
