National Organization for Women.

Since its foundation in 1966 amidst the civil rights movements, the National Organization for Women has been at the forefront of feminist activism, using both traditional and non traditional means of protest throughout the US.

The main policies and ideals NOW fight for are; fighting for economic equality and employment rights (by way of securing a change to the US constitution), reproductive freedom, and abortion choice rights. Both of which are heated topics in the US today.

As well as fighting for employment and reproductive rights, NOW are also heavily involved in equal rights within the LGBT community. NOW also run campaigns against violence against women, another serious social issue today.
