In that Moment I Knew. AAUW Annual Report 2009
American Association of University Women
In the pages of this year's annual report, readers will hear the stories of women across the country who have been confronted with barriers. These women represent the unique and diverse fabric of AAUW (American Association of University Women): they are long-time members, new members, donors, grant recipients, fellows, and friends united in the fight for women and girls. Their moments differ. Some realized inequities at a single point in time. For others, a series of moments stretched over the course of their lives. Their barriers differ. Some women experienced pay inequity. Others suffered sexual harassment and abuse. Some were up against an organization that failed to comply with Title IX. Still others faced barriers to education. But each and every time, their response was the same: "I need to do something." These women knew they needed to take action and become leaders in their schools, workplaces, communities, and countries, so they turned to AAUW as a leading voice in breaking through barriers for women and girls. Within the AAUW community they found resources and support, educational and leadership opportunities, a way to amplify their voices, and an avenue for offering support to others.
