What we’re about
We're a social, professional and activist network of friends of feminism who wish to meet, make friends, and have fun, while learning about and taking action on a wide variety of social justice issues. Speakers, discussions, rallies, films, festivals and more.
Sponsored by C’ville NOW (the Charlottesville Chapter of the National Organization for Women). As part of the largest organization of feminist grassroots activists in the United States, Charlottesville NOW is dedicated to an intersectional multi-issue and multi-strategy approach to women’s rights. We take action to promote feminist ideals, lead societal change, eliminate discrimination, and achieve and protect the equal rights of all women and girls in all aspects of social, political and economic life.
