Voting and STEM

Just out from www.aauw.org is a new Woman to Woman Voter Turnout Manual. Women tend to be "drop-out" voters, more so than men. Apparently we have a hard time learning to show up for every election. We also have a hard time making ourselves heard on issues. (I did not say that we are never heard.) Persuading more women to vote while not excluding men is good place to start. Even more resources are available at the Woman-to Woman Voter Turnout website.

AAUW has also released a new STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) position paper and resource page. The position paper is available as www.aauw.org then to the STEM issues web page.

Happy hunting.
We would be happy to have you join us to work on these issues at www.aauw-nys.org.
