AAUW Trailblazers

The end of Women's History Month is not the end of women's history! We will be shining a spotlight from time to time on AAUW members, fellows, and award winners who have pioneered advances for gender equity.

Jeannette Rankin (1880-1973)

AAUW Member, women's rights advocate, and politician, Jeannette Rankin was the first woman to hold federal office in the United States. She served two terms in Congress (R-MT, 1917-19; 1941-43).

DEI Terms & Concepts #4:

Unconscious (Implicit) Bias

AAUW's Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) toolkit is designed to help branches make their programs and membership more inclusive, but it can also be helpful for individual members in our personal lives. As you explore the toolkit, keep an eye out for things you think our branch could implement or incorporate. And let us know!

  • Unconscious/implicit bias operates outside of a person’s awareness and may even be in direct contradiction to a person’s espoused beliefs and values
