Title IX

In 2018, the Federal Department of Education issued a plan to make sweeping changes to Title IX’s regulations, which would impact students, civil rights and federal enforcement of the law.


The Healdsburg AAUW Public Policy Committee is made up of members who passionately support our mission and want to volunteer their time to address issues such as the gender pay gap, getting out the vote, Title IX and women and girls in STEM as well as leadership roles.  We meet on an ad hoc basis to coordinate our activities and put on events such as Unhappy Hour on Equal Pay Day, speakers form organizations like the Women’s History Alliance and the Centennial Celebration for Women’s Suffrage.
