Next Branch Meeting…

Wednesday, February 6 — Title IX

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 was the first comprehensive federal law to prohibit sex discrimination in education. Unfortunately, its work is not done; in fact, many of its provisions are currently threatened. Join us for this all-important look at one of our country’s most important legislative efforts.

7:00 PM
The Glen Ellyn History Center
800 N. Main Street, Glen Ellyn

Looking ahead …

Save the date for LUNAFEST!!  –  Saturday, March 30, 2019

LUNAFEST is an international film festival featuring short films made by, for and about women.

So get ready to buy your ticket to our own LUNAFEST on Saturday, March 30, 2019 at The Center Stage in Naperville, IL. Our evening will open with hors d’oeuvres, a cash bar, and raffle baskets. The films will last approximately 2 hours with an intermission.  It promises to be an entertaining and educational evening.

Proceeds from the LUNAFEST Fundraiser will support our organization’s Educational Opportunities Fund. Our Educational Opportunities Fund contributes to AAUW fellowships and research grants at the national level and locally provides scholarships in the form of Higher Education Incentive Awards for women graduating from Wheaton and Glen Ellyn high schools who are beginning their college studies at the College of DuPage.
