To promote fair, equal treatment of women on the Eastern Shore by inspiring, educating and advocating.
The American Association of University Women (AAUW) seeks to empower women and girls. Our nonpartisan, nonprofit organization has more than 170,000 members and supporters across the United States, over 1,000 local branches and over 800 college and university partners. Since AAUW’s founding in 1881, we have taken positive action on the fundamental educational, social, economic, and political issues that impact women.
AAUW advances equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, and research.

2020 marks the Centennial of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote.
The Easton Branch of AAUW had planned a series of programs to commemorate and celebrate that pivotal moment in American history and the commitment of the thousands of women who worked to achieve it. We are delighted to join the Talbot County Free Library in co-sponsoring some of these events.
The Covid-19 crisis has put a stop to our ambitious schedule for Spring and Summer 2020. We may have a branch patio/pool party at the Hegarty home in August, if medically prudent. The Women Who Make a Difference Luncheon is postponed until Sept. 26th. The Amending America program has been re-scheduled for Oct. 24.
Stay safe. Be well. Be grateful for all the medical personnel, emergency workers, grocery clerks, van drivers, and others who are keeping us going. Let’s keep in touch.
