Women have been running for president of the United States since 1872 — before women even had the right to vote.

This year, two high-profile women entered the race, and Hillary Clinton has now become the first female presidential nominee of a major political party.

Here are some of the women who have tried to crack the ultimate glass ceiling.

National Giving, Local Impact

There are many ways to honor or memorialize someone special or recognize an important event by investing in women and girls through AAUW.

  • Celebrate Your Milestone: Establish an Honorary or Memorial Fund

Sponsorship is a powerful way to show your support for AAUW national initiatives and see the results at the local level- Sponsor one of the AAUW programs in your community.

AAUW is a national organization that advances equity for women and girls through advocacy, education and research. Membership provides an opportunity for personal and professional growth, community leadership and friendship. We invite women and men who hold an associate or equivalent or higher degree from an accredited college or university to join us in our efforts to promote equity and education for women and girls.  Students enrolled as undergraduates in a two- or four-year regionally accredited educational institution can enjoy opportunities for activism, leadership training or internships by joining as affiliates.

Regular meetings and events feature speakers discussing current issues and other topics of special interest to the group.  Members have the opportunity to join various interest groups or to form new groups.

One of the main projects of the branch is to raise funds to send 7th grade girls to Tech Trek, a week of science and math experiences at a Bay Area college.  Other projects have included workshops on financial literacy for women and co-sponsoring election forums.
