The AAUW Medford Branch has 35 members with 5 elected officers and 8 committee chairs. We support programs and issues that empower women and girls, in compliance with the goals of the National AAUW. We raise money to fund two college scholarships for "non-traditional women students." In addition, we participate in a yearly event, Running and Winning, that raises awareness of young women and girls who want to run for elective office. We meet monthly from September through May and have guest speakers present issues of importance to our members, including health, financial/legal security, public policy, local history and preservation, and women's outreach.
