American Association of University Women, Tucson

We advance equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research

We are women and men who take action to forward AAUW’s purpose in our local community.

By focusing on:

– K – 12 Educators in order to improve the quality of education in Arizona
– Education and Training through college scholarships at Pima and the University of Arizona.
– Economic Security for women and girls through a series of Start Smart workshops, designed to empower women with skills and confidence to negotiate starting salaries, and benefits
– Leadership Skills through a Running and Winning Program, which encourages high school juniors and seniors to discover their leadership abilities and consider running for public office.

We welcome everyone into our organization who holds an associate or higher degree from a regionally accredited college or university, without regard to gender, race, age, sexual orientation, national origin, disability or religious persuasion.

Saturday, May 8, is a special AAUW Zoom call — a tour of the University of Arizona World of Words (WOW). This is one of the largest collections of children’s books in the world and we have a renowned expert who will be our tour guide — Dr. Kathy Short, who is a Professor of Teaching, Learning and Sociocultural Studies, and Director of WOW.

Our library recognizes that our lives have gone global. Communities in all parts of the world, from rural towns to large urban cities, are increasingly diverse due to global mobility. Rapid economic, social, and technological changes connect people around the globe. No matter where we live, our daily lives interconnect through globalization in its differing forms.

Knowledge of the world and an understanding of global perspectives have thus become a necessity, not a luxury. Children no longer have a decision about whether or not they will lead global lives–but they do need to decide how they will live in a global society.

One important resource for building bridges across cultures is global children’s
literature. Literature provides an opportunity for children to go beyond a tourist
perspective of gaining surface-level information about another culture.

Literature expands children’s life spaces and takes them outside the boundaries of their lives to other places, times, and ways of living to participate in alternative ways of being in the world.
