AAUW's Mission

AAUW advances equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research.

AAUW Delaware

Comprised of six branches with a combined membership of approximately 400, AAUW Delaware lobbies the Delaware State Legislature; co-sponsors candidate forums with the League of Women Voters; partners with the Delaware Financial Literacy Institute/The Money School. AAUW Delaware promotes, encourages and coordinates the work of all its branches.  This year we sponsored a showing of the film “Lakshmi” at the Rehoboth Beach Film Festival.

Legislative Update

Rep. Stephanie T. Bolden talks about her personal experiences with gender pay inequality after lawmakers met this week to highlight the issue.

 

The Gender Pay Gap: Delaware

In the state of Delaware, women who work fulltime were typically paid just 83% to every dollar paid to men working fulltime. That is a difference of 17 cents per dollar. These numbers vary even more when comparing by race/ethnicity. White men earn on average $50,776 yearly. White women living in Delaware earn 21% less at $39,946 yearly. African-American women that make Delaware their home earn $33,780 yearly, which is 33% less. Delaware’s Hispanic women earn 44% less at $28,526 yearly.
