AAUW of North Carolina has released a report on the voting record of the 2013 NC General Assembly.
Summary of the issues surrounding women’s low representation in elected office, and what we can do about it.
On March 29 AAUW NC welcomed Jacquelin Heath of Vance-Granville Community College to speak about the AAUW funded project to encourage VGCC women students to complete bachelor’s degrees.
Many of the branches support STEM (Science, Technology, Education, and Math) activities to encourage girls to get and stay interested in these fields. This is seen as a way to fight the gender pay gap (since many of these fields have higher average pay than most occupations) as well as simple fairness in the classroom…
Specific bills, including the budget, have harmed public education in the state. AAUW members speak out.
Mandatory bylaws changes have been inserted into the AAUW NC bylaws and a new version has been released.
The start of the “virtual packet” of information that attendees collected at the meeting. This will be updated as we release the final copy of the 2013 NCGA Voting Record and AAUW posts additional resources on their website.
