The very first convention in Washington, D.C., was held in October 1892. The 1890s were a period of tremendous societal change and technological advances, and women were playing a more active role in society than ever before (sound familiar). Since then, our association has convened in the nation’s capital 13 times, tying with Boston for the most frequented convention city! Learn more about the history of AAUW’s Convention in Washington, D.C. and the women’s history to be explored during the 49th AAUW National Convention from June 14 to 17, 2017.

With our 49th AAUW National Convention coming up this June, take a minute to look back at our very first Lobby Day. This takes us back in time to 1989 and the 35th AAUW National Convention, where the theme that year was “Choices, Changes, and Connections.”

AAUW’s new research report Deeper In Debt has shown that women bare a disproportionate amount of student debt. These six women invested in themselves and their future by pursuing higher education. But those degrees came at large price.
