AAUW advocates for women and girls - not corporate special interests.

Great AAUW video: #TheNew10 Submission - The U.S. Treasury has called on Americans to submit their "ideas, symbols, designs, or any other feedback that can inform the secretary as he considers options for the $10 redesign." So we figured we'd help Secretary Lew reimagine the $10 bill by illustrating just how real the gender pay gap is.
