AAUW’s annual election began April 7th and will run through May 17th. AAUW members will vote on a long-standing membership requirement, which creates a barrier to women who do not hold a college degree. This proposed change is recommended by the AAUW Board of Directors and the AAUW Governance Committee, and has been voted down in the past.
