Women Making a Difference, Individually and Collectively

Women’s March 2019 – Truth to Power

On January 19, 2019, Women’s March Bay Area will unite in San Jose and San Francisco once again to reaffirm its commitment to building a positive and just future for all, and to celebrate the spirit of resistance efforts over the past year. The march is designed to engage and empower all people to support women’s rights, human rights, social and environmental justice. AAUW San Jose will be participating in the San Jose march for the third straight year! All March participants are encouraged to “purchase” a free ticket so that organizers can estimate the number of marchers to expect.

As an all volunteer-run 501c(3), Women’s March Bay Area relies on community support to create the safe and inspiring events for which it is known. Donate here.

Barriers to Education: Why Girls Drop Out
Sunday, February 10
2 pm – 4 pm
San Jose City College Technology Center Room T415

Join us to understand the reasons why girls and women don’t complete their education. Our speaker Maha Ibrahim of Equal Rights Advocates will present research showing how harassment can get girls off track. A panel of local experts will discuss the impact at middle school, high school, college and into the workplace. Legal protections and local actions will be covered. We will also explore solutions to the barriers girls and women still face, and hear about successful strategies that have worked in local schools.

Don’t miss this important opportunity to see why #MeToo is meaningful to women and girls everywhere.
