In the late 1800’s less than 1% of women between the ages of 18 to 24 were in college. College-educated women knew they were privileged, and decided to use that power to work for social justice. They created what became known as the American Association of University Women (</span>AAUW<span style="line-height: 1.5;">). The San Francisco chapter is the oldest branch in California, and the third oldest in the country.</span></p> Thu, 12 Jun 2014 02:00:00 +0000 Holly Kernan & News Producer 45066 at http://kalw.org Interview with Kathleen Cha former AAUW president Skyline High School music program does a lot with a little http://kalw.org/post/skyline-high-school-music-program-does-lot-little <p></p><p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">It’s 7:30 in the morning at Skyline High and the halls are humming with activity.
