On March 8, AAUW will stand in solidarity with the millions of women across the country and around the world committed to advancing gender equality. Whether by observing International Women’s Day, participating in the “day without a woman” general strike, or taking action to advance policies that empower women and girls, AAUW members will observe March 8 not as a day off but as a “day on.” Women cannot afford to wait for equality, and it won’t happen without our mobilized action.

For more than 135 years AAUW has advanced equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research. Whether by advocating legislative change, making their voices heard on social media, or taking to the streets in their communities, on March 8 AAUW members across the country will do their part to raise awareness and take action to improve the lives of all women and girls.
