Welcome to the Los Alamos (NM) Branch of AAUW!

The American Association of University Women is a national organization that advances gender equity for women and girls through research, education and advocacy.

A key AAUW goal is to close the gender pay gap by 2030. Women working full time still earn only 80% of what men earn for similar work.
