We are a club of about 90-100 active and diverse women in the Marysville and Yuba City areas of Sutter and Yuba Counties in Northern California. There are many opportunities in our branch for fun and education including monthly branch meetings with outstanding speakers, bridge, writing, books, travel, play reading, and traveling gourmet sections, as well as advocacy and action groups. Our annual fundraiser, the AAUW GARDEN TOUR, Garden Tour 2017 poster is the first Saturday in May. AAUW Membership is open to anyone holding an associate’s (or equivalent e.g. RN), bachelor’s, or higher degree from a regionally accredited college or university. Our branch was chartered in 1955 and has been changing our local area ever since with our STEM Conference for 8th grade girls, Tech Trek science camp for 7th grade girls, and college scholarships. We hope that you will join us.
In January Congressman John Garamendi invited some of our branch leaders to meet with him in Yuba City to discuss some of the issues we are concerned about.

Women working full time in the United States typically are paid just 80 percent of what men were paid. The figure is even more dire for African-American, Hispanic or Latino women. While many occupations have managed to narrow or even close the pay gap, disparity still exists.
AAUW’s The Simple Truth about the Gender Pay Gap addresses the issues such as the pay gap in each state; the pay gap by age, race/ethnicity, and education; guidance for women facing workplace discrimination; resources for fair pay advocates etc.

The State Policy Sex Trafficking Tool Kit outlines three key state policy priorities — hotline posting requirements, safe harbor laws, and vacatur laws — to identify and combat sex trafficking.
