NOW tackles so many women's issues besides access to birth control and equal rights. NOW is dedicated to making legal, political, social and economic change in our society in order to achieve our goal, which is to eliminate sexism and end all oppression. I want to be a part of that effort and am interested in outreach and education.
There are so many, I can't choose just one! I would like to quote NOW's statement of purpose, which is: "The purpose of NOW is to take action to bring women into full participation in the mainstream of American society now, exercising all privileges and responsibilities thereof in truly equal partnership with men."
I hope to be able to bring women together, to talk about issues that affect all womenkind, and hope to be able to make our society better for our daugters and granddaughters. I would love to see a world where women are truly considered equal to men, and where women of all stripes do not feel the need to hide who they are.
I am a 44 year old married woman who has always been interested in women's issues and have wanted to make a difference in my community.
A great group of women working hard to bring about change!
