Women

Women currently make up approximately 5.18% of the MUA's membership and that number is growing! MUA Women is intended to provide women with support and a sense of sisterhood within the union. Initiatives like this one are aimed at reducing feelings of isolation and alienation, and set about strengthening our women activists.

Resources available from the women's committee include:
