NOW has 500,000 contributing members and 550 chapters in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Since its founding in 1966, NOW's goal has been "to take action" to bring about equality for all women. Both the actions NOW takes and its position on the issues are often unorthodox, uncompromising and ahead of their time.<br> - <br> - NOW's actions have established the organization as a major force in the sweeping changes that put more women in political posts; increased educational, employment and business opportunities for women; and enacted tougher laws against violence, harassment and discrimination. NOW's official priorities are winning economic equality and securing it with an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that will guarantee equal rights for women; championing abortion rights, reproductive freedom and other women's health issues; opposing racism and fighting bigotry against lesbians and gays; and ending violence against women.<br> - <br> - NOW activists use both traditional and non-traditional means to push for social change. NOW activists do extensive electoral and lobbying work and bring lawsuits. They also organize mass marches, rallies, pickets, non-violent civil disobedience and immediate, responsive "zap" actions. NOW re-instituted mass marches for women's rights in the face of conventional wisdom that marches were a technique that went out with the 1960s. A NOW-organized march in support of the Equal Rights Amendment drew more than 100,000 people to Washington, D.C. in 1978. NOW's Marches for Women's Lives drew 500,000 supporters to Washington, D.C. in 1989 and 750,000 in 1992, for the largest women's rights demonstration ever. In 1995, NOW organized the first mass demonstration to focus on the issue of violence against women—and drew a quarter million people to the Mall. The 1996 March to Fight the Right in San Francisco drew more than 50,000 activists to kick off an electoral season focused on efforts to defend affirmative action. In 2004, the March for Women's Lives became the largest mass action of any kind in U.S. history, bringing a record 1.15 million people to the National Mall to advocate for women's reproductive health options.<br> - <br> - * Sexual Harassment and Violence<br> - * Promoting Diversity and Ending Racism<br> - * Abortion Rights and Reproductive Freedom<br> - * Lesbian Rights<br> - * Women's Work<br> - * Women in the Constitution<br> - * Elected Feminists<br> - * NOW's Founding<br> - <br> - '''Sexual Harassment and Violence'''<br> - <br> - NOW's work on harassment and violence dates back to its earliest days. NOW activists organized the first Take Back The Night marches. They founded hot lines and shelters for battered women and lobbied for government funding of programs aimed at stopping violence against women, winning passage of a new ground-breaking federal Violence Against Women Act in 1994. Sexual harassment was one of the key issues that motivated students across the country to form high school chapters of NOW in the early 1990s. NOW activists continue to organize in support of new, comprehensive federal legislation focused on prevention, state-level programs for poor women who face violence and legal recognition of hate crimes based on sex and sexual orientation.<br> - <br> - '''Promoting Diversity and Ending Racism'''<br> - <br> - Since its founding in 1966, NOW has worked to oppose racism and support diversity. The late Rev. Pauli Murray, the first African American woman to become an Episcopal minister, was a NOW founder who co-authored its Statement of Purpose. Aileen Hernandez became the second president of NOW in 1971, and two years later NOW established its first task force on women of color. In 1980 NOW instituted an affirmative action program, and today people of color make up 50% of NOW's executive officers, nearly one-third of the organization's national board and one-quarter of staff.

Since then NOW has been fighting for full reproductive rights for all women, including poor women and young women. NOW's Project Stand Up for Women trained thousands of abortion rights supporters to serve as clinic defenders. NOW won a pivotal U.S. Supreme Court victory in the 1994 case NOW v. Scheidler. The ruling affirmed NOW's right to use federal racketeering laws (RICO) against anti-abortion extremists who organize campaigns of fear, force and violence to deny women their right to abortion. In April 1998, a federal jury returned a unanimous verdict confirming NOW's charges that Joe Scheidler, Operation Rescue and other defendants are racketeers.

It has been one of the organization's priority issues since 1975 and was the theme of two national conferences. NOW Foundation organized a national summit on this issue in 1999. Through the years, NOW activists have challenged anti-lesbian and gay laws and ballot initiatives in many states. Over 25 years ago, NOW gave strong support to a landmark case, Belmont v. Belmont, that defined lesbian partners as a nurturing family and awarded a lesbian mother custody of her two children. The plaintiff in that case, Rosemary Dempsey, served as NOW's Action Vice President from 1989 to 1997. Since that time NOW has worked to end discrimination and bigotry against gays and lesbians, end hate crimes, and advance equal rights. NOW is actively involved in fighting the attacks on same-sex marriage that have become the leading anti-lesbian and gay strategy of the radical right.<br> - <br> - The section of the web site with details on NOW's lesbian rights work is [http://www.now.org/issues/lgbi/index.html here].<br> - <br> - '''Women's Work'''<br> - <br> - One of NOW's strongest concerns is gaining recognition of the value of women's work, both in the home and the paid labor market. NOW first popularized the slogan, "Every Mother is a Working Mother" and the phrase, "women who work outside the home." In the 1970s NOW's lobbying and pickets of newspapers and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission forced newspapers to eliminate sex-segregated "Help Wanted" ads, opening up more diverse and high-paying jobs to women. NOW also pressed landmark lawsuits against sex discrimination in employment, winning millions in back pay for women. For example, in the 1969 case Weeks v. Southern Bell, attorney Sylvia Roberts, NOW's Southern Regional Director, won a U.S. Fifth Circuit ruling that it was a violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act to bar women from jobs that involved lifting more than 30 pounds. This landmark decision was the first to apply Title VII to sex discrimination. NOW continues to work for pay equity and expose and address both the glass ceiling and sexual harassment employed women face and the dire situation of poor women in this country.<br> - <br> - See [http://www.now.org/issues/wfw/ for information about NOW's Women Friendly Workplace campaign].<br> - <br> - '''Women in the Constitution'''<br> - <br> - In order to increase economic equality and other rights for women, NOW launched a nationwide campaign in the 1970s to pass an Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) to the U.S. Constitution. As part of the campaign, NOW leaders distributed buttons reading "59¢" to draw attention to the wage gap; that figure represented the median wage then paid to women for every dollar paid to men. When the ERA was not ratified by the original deadline Congress set, NOW succeeded in its campaign to extend the time limit for ratification by more than three years.<br> - <br> - In the course of its high-profile ERA work, NOW became a huge network of more than 200,000 grassroots activists and began operating with multi-million dollar annual budgets. Leaders organized two political action committees, NOW/PAC and NOW Equality PAC, that raised millions of dollars for pro-ERA candidates.<br> - <br> - The work toward constitutional equality for women continues.

Most significantly, they began to focus less on trying to influence men in power and more on electing feminists to replace them. The seeds sown during the Equal Rights Amendment campaigns gave root to the current—and expanding—crop of women elected officials.<br> - <br> - NOW's independent Elect Women for a Change campaign in the 1992 elections sent an unprecedented number of feminist women and men to the U.S. Congress and state capitals. NOW contends that in addition to its strong get-out-the-vote efforts, two major factors contributed to those electoral victories: the threat to abortion rights and women's anger over the U.S. Senate's treatment of law professor Anita Hill and its confirmation of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. NOW's record-breaking abortion rights march kicked off its 1992 electoral work and resulted in unprecedented victories that November.<br> - <br> - Just as the events preceding the 1982 and 1992 elections helped motivate women to run for newly open seats, we are busy encouraging activists for the next big opportunity—the 2004 presidential elections.

NOW's official priorities are winning economic equality and securing it with an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that will guarantee equal rights for women; championing abortion rights, reproductive freedom and other women's health issues; opposing racism and fighting bigotry against lesbians and gays; and ending violence against women.<br> + <br> + NOW activists use both traditional and non-traditional means to push for social change. NOW activists do extensive electoral and lobbying work and bring lawsuits. They also organize mass marches, rallies, pickets, non-violent civil disobedience and immediate, responsive "zap" actions. NOW re-instituted mass marches for women's rights in the face of conventional wisdom that marches were a technique that went out with the 1960s. A NOW-organized march in support of the Equal Rights Amendment drew more than 100,000 people to Washington, D.C. in 1978. NOW's Marches for Women's Lives drew 500,000 supporters to Washington, D.C. in 1989 and 750,000 in 1992, for the largest women's rights demonstration ever. In 1995, NOW organized the first mass demonstration to focus on the issue of violence against women—and drew a quarter million people to the Mall. The 1996 March to Fight the Right in San Francisco drew more than 50,000 activists to kick off an electoral season focused on efforts to defend affirmative action. In 2004, the March for Women's Lives became the largest mass action of any kind in U.S. history, bringing a record 1.15 million people to the National Mall to advocate for women's reproductive health options.<br> + <br> + * Sexual Harassment and Violence<br> + * Promoting Diversity and Ending Racism<br> + * Abortion Rights and Reproductive Freedom<br> + * Lesbian Rights<br> + * Women's Work<br> + * Women in the Constitution<br> + * Elected Feminists<br> + * NOW's Founding<br> + <br> + Sexual Harassment and Violence<br> + <br> + NOW's work on harassment and violence dates back to its earliest days. NOW activists organized the first Take Back The Night marches. They founded hot lines and shelters for battered women and lobbied for government funding of programs aimed at stopping violence against women, winning passage of a new ground-breaking federal Violence Against Women Act in 1994. Sexual harassment was one of the key issues that motivated students across the country to form high school chapters of NOW in the early 1990s.
