NOW’s purpose
is to take action to bring women into full partnership in the mainstream of American society NOW, exercising all privileges and responsibilities thereof in truly equal partnership with men.

Cincinnati NOW is the Cincinnati chapter of the National Organization for Women. As such, we are a grassroots organization serving women and men committed to women’s rights. Following national NOW’s lead, the Cincinnati chapter is dedicated to taking action to bring about equality for all women.

Among other things, 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.

Meeting monthly, as we have for over 30 years, the Cincinnati chapter of NOW provides a forum for education, support, advocacy and activism. Monthly speakers provide education about myriad topics pertaining to women and girls. We also conduct various “actions” to bring awareness to continuing injustice. These actions may include protests, marches, letter-writing campaigns, petitions, performances, information fairs, conferences, or any number of other activities designed to increase awareness and make change happen.

Cincinnati NOW continues to work for equality:

  • Because worldwide, women and girls have yet to be embraced as equals.
  • Because in this country, work is going on everyday to ensure that access to safe and affordable birth control and abortion is taken away.
  • Because women and girls continue to be beaten in their homes.
  • Because women have yet to earn as much as men in comparable jobs.
  • Because girls are in danger of losing Title IX which allows them to grow in strength, confidence and spirit.
  • Because gays, lesbians, bi-sexuals and transgendered people are persecuted, hurt, discriminated against and even killed.
  • Because women of color continue to be blindsided by compounded oppressions.
  • Because poor women aren’t given a chance to support themselves and their kids.
  • Because eating disorders and low self-esteem are being spewed out of television and magazines.
  • Because racism is continued in the name of “white womanhood.”
  • Because raising children and caring for elders has yet to be seen as “real” work.
