HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY.
The AAC wouldn’t be the Club we are today without the work of womxn of all walks of life. Today, this month, and year-round, we celebrate the accomplishments—both on and off the climbing wall—of female and non-binary climbers, mountaineers, and advocates. Thank you all for being here.

We're featuring women on the cover of all three of our publications.

We're running women's-specific grants, like the Live Like Liz Grant and McNeill-Knott Award.
We're featuring ascents by women in our Cutting Edge podcast.
We supported the Sexual Harassment in Climbing Survey.
We support women's initiatives by partnering with groups like Brown Girls Climb, Outdoor Women's Alliance, and FlashFoxy.
We're working a a chapter-by-chapter level to support other local women's events and initiatives.
The American Alpine Journal is working toward telling more women's stories this year.
We're actively working to have an even gender split in our member base that reflects the demographics of the climbing community.
