Transcript Need for Equality NOW is both a registered student group and a chartered sub- unit of the National Organization for Women, NOW, Inc. Like a sorority or fraternity, it serves as a friendship group, a place to find others of like mind. It also is supported in its activities by a national organization. Unlike a Greek organization, however, it also serves its members by taking action on feminist issues, actions which are intended to increase political, social, and economic equality for all women and men. Also unlike most sororities and fraternities, it is not a single-sex, and does not discriminate on the basis of marital status, parenthood, sexual orientation, race, ethnic orientation, or economic condition. The National Organization for Women, was founded in 1966 by Betty Friedan, author of The Femminine Mystique and 29 other women and men to take action and "to bring women into full participation in the mainstream of American society now." Its acronym, NOW, by which it is most commonly known, expresses the urgency of its founders. Today's members are equally urgent about the need NOW has four main national priorities — the Equal Rights Amendment, Reproductive Rights, Combatting Racism, and Lesbian and Gay Rights. for equality for women. There are four main national priorities — the Equal Rights Ammendment, Reproductive Rights, Combatting Racism, and Lesbian and Gay Rights. NOW has worked on these issues since its founding in 1981. During Black History Month and Women's History Month, members sponsored programs combatting racism and sexism, pointing out the similarities and differences between the two. In keeping with the National NOW concern about electing more feminists to office so that when the ERA is passed by Congress it will be ratified in State Legislatures, members are active in the College Democrats and in bringing feminist candidates such as Pat Schroeder and Jesse Jackson to campus. Nine members attended their precinct caucuses and were elected as delegates to the State Senatorial District Convention. Feminists know that fundamental to the struggle for equality for all women is the right of each woman to control her own person. This includes the right to define and express her own sexuality. The label "lesbian" is still used to intimidate women, especially those who seek non-traditional jobs or roles. Six members went to Washington, D.C. in October to attend a Washington University conference on legal rights for lesbians and gay men which was held the same weekend as the Lesbian/Gay March on Washington which attracted hundreds of thousands in support.
