Research by AAUWNN determined there were very few books in the public school libraries that focused on women. This gap is detrimental in allowing young girls to see the tremendous possibilities that are available to them. Through fund raising efforts, AAUW-NN, in a program called Remember The Ladies, now donates books that specifically focus on women in history, including great inventors, astronauts, business women, and others who are important role models, to all Northville and Novi school libraries.
In addition to donating books, we have set up a reading program at each of the local elementary schools. During the month of March, which is National Reading month AND Women's history month, we volunteer to read books about women to local classrooms.
Please help us continue this program by awarding us the $1000 grant to continue to promote opportunity and education for young women in our community.
