Since AAUW’s founding our members and supporters have spoken out about issues and policies important to women and girls. Without their voices, invaluable legislation would have never been passed. In recent years, such legislation included the Family and Medical Leave Act, the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act, and the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act.
AAUW of Michigan member leaders through our state and local branch organization work to ensure our voices are heard on the issues that impact Michigan women and their families as well.
