AAUW Asheville

Founded March 17, 1915 | Fourth Oldest Branch in North Carolina

The Asheville branch of AAUW traces its history from 1915 when sixteen local women college graduates organized what would locally become AAUW Asheville.  Its work in Asheville has been ongoing and influential in the community, nation, and world, assisting women through such related projects as refugee relief and improvement of public schools. Its history is replete with names of local women who made significant inroads for women and girls.  Learn more about our history, projects, and interest and study groups, review our latest branch news, or contact us at ashevilleaauw@gmail.com to see how we can work together to advance education and equity for all women and girls.

AAUW’s Mission
AAUW advances equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research.
