Welcome to the Horry County Branch of AAUW

AAUW has been empowering women as individuals and as a community since 1881. For more than 130 years, we have worked together as a national grassroots organization to improve the lives of millions of women and their families.


AAUW’s salary negotiation workshops are designed to help you negotiate for a new job, raise, or promotion.  In this online workshop you’ll gain confidence in your negotiation skills, learn to successfully advocate for yourself, and help close the pay gap for yourself and for women everywhere.

We would like to thank all who attended our September meeting, with special thanks to our speakers from the Moms Demand Action Marcelle Ross, and Tisa Whack and Ashley Cohen both of whom also belong to the Everytown Survivors Network.

We also want to like to extend special thanks to Democratic Candidate for U.S. Senator, Jaime Harrison, who spoke about issues here in South Carolina that can and will be addressed when he is elected. He left us feeling hopeful!
