The Branch is comprised of 37 members Pontiac-Waterford, who are committed to the AAUW mission, which promotes equity for all women and girls.
This branch has been focusing on women and the many issues that they face in this complicated world. They have had speakers on Neighbors Helping Neighbors which focuses on area outreach programs to help families in need in our community and young women facing pregnancy concerns.
Other programs have been about local anti-bullying efforts in their schools and a very in depth presentation of mothers, daughters and famous women leaders in Oakland County. The latter program was also done as a traveling exhibit which they are hoping to sponsor next March during Women’s History Month at the public library. They did a program on “Passing the Torch” about the women’s movement in Michigan, where guest speakers and members shared stories of their experiences and struggles to achieve equality and recognition. The branch also participated financially and physically in the Women in Transition Conference with Birmingham and Oakland.
