AAUW Duluth was originally organized in 1894. Following the lead from the national and state arms of AAUW, the Duluth branch fosters equity for all women and girls, lifelong education, and positive social change. Over the years, public policy initiatives have included education, gender discrimination, civil rights, reproductive choice, Title IX, pay equity, and health care reform.

Most branch members live in the Twin Ports of Duluth, Minnesota, and Superior, Wisconsin, on the shores of Lake Superior. In accordance with our commitment to diversity, we acknowledge that these cities are located on the traditional lands of Indigenous people.
