Are you as angry about the Presidential election as us? It's yet another reason we believe in democracy. We should be able to elect our leaders -- whether it's for the Oval Office or the organizations we volunteer with.
NOW is the ONLY membership-led, completely democratic, national, multi-issue feminist organization in the U.S.
As the grassroots arm of the women's rights movement, NOW members decide on everything from who the officers are to the issues the organization will focus on.
There are hundreds of great organizations working on gender equality in the U.S., but no other organization is completely democratic, which allows underrepresented groups--like women of color, immigrant women, and young women--to run for and win leadership positions.
Our purpose is to help bring young women, men, trans and gender nonconforming folks into activism and give a greater voice to youth, who feel underrepresented at times. We also want to work with our allies to foster intergenerational and intersectional exchanges. We want feminists of ALL AGES to join us.
If you support democracy, join us!
