Founded in 1968, the Massachusetts Chapter of the National Organization for Women (Mass. NOW) is the only multi-issue, multi-strategy feminist organization in the Commonwealth. With nine local chapters across the state, Mass. NOW works to advance the equal status of women and girls in all aspects of their lives.
Our six priority issue areas are:
- Violence against women
- Racial justice
- Reproductive rights and health
- Economic equality and labor rights
- LGTBQ equality
- Civil and consitutional rights
Mass. NOW works to eliminate discrimination and harassment in the workplace, schools, the justice system, and all other sectors of society, secure abortion, birth control, and reproductive rights for all women, end all forms of violence against women, eradicate racism, sexism, and homophobia, and promote equality and justice in our society.
Mass. NOW uses a variety of strategies and tactics to achieve our goal. Through our legislative, educational, and political work, we work to create change in many different ways, on many different levels.
