June 1969: AAUW Passes Resolution on Equal Opportunities for Women

AAUW passes a resolution at the national convention in Chicago, which says that “the Board of Directors urges support by all members, branches, and state divisions of new efforts to achieve equal status and a complete range of alternatives for women. AAUW will actively seek avenues and means by which we may make a positive contribution toward this goal.” The organization and our members begin to examine the status of women on campuses at all levels, including students, faculty, and administrators.
