Language of Materials
The American Association of University Women (AAUW) had its first meeting in 1881 in Boston, Massachusetts. Marian Talbot and Ellen Richards, along with fifteen alumnae from eight colleges, met to discuss the needs of college-educated women. Dedicated to promoting equality and education among women and girls, the AAUW has over 170,000 members and supporters, 1000 local branches, and 800 college and university partners (as of 2015).
The Charlotte branch of the AAUW began in 1913 as a college literary study group, and officially joined the AAUW in 1921. AAUW provides grants and fellowships to women furthering their education, finances research and also includes a legal advocacy fund that fights against discrimination in higher education.
This collection contains a scrapbook, quilt, and folder with yearbooks dated 1943-1956.
