Women Making a Difference chronicles the founding, growth, and accomplishments of one of AAUW's most distinguished local branches. Its founding members, all college graduates at a time when such a feat was a rarity, dedicated the organization to a unique mission: to encourage young women to go to college. Over four generations, its members engaged in fellowship, self-study, and community service. Their most significant accomplishment: an ambitious scholarship program that changed lives.
The book-which features scores of anecdotes, numerous personality profiles, and more than 200 images, including many vintage photographs from the branch's archival collection-stands as a tribute to the foresight and hard work of a group of remarkable women and an inspiration to their successors.
