The American Association of University Women was founded in 1882 for the purpose of "uniting graduates of various institutions for practical educational work". The Wilmington Branch members study issues pertinent to women, support the national AAUW that lobbies and works to protect women's rights, and raises funds to provide scholarships to women going to college and graduate school. We are women graduates who support all women to make societal change for the better.
