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.
