About Our Branch

The Reston-Herndon Area Branch, founded in 1969, is a vibrant group of women and men balancing leadership of our mission  to advance equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research with activities that are educational, engaging and fun. We welcome members from the Reston, Herndon, Chantilly, Great Falls, Oak Hill, Ashburn, Leesburg and Sterling.  View “Advancing Equity for Women and Girls: AAUW Reston-Herndon Branch,” Reston Magazine, Fall 2013.
