The National Organization for Women is the largest organization of feminist grassroots activists in the United States. The organization was founded in 1966 and today consists of 550 chapters in all 50 U.S. states and in Washington, D.C. It's dedicated to a multi-issue and multi-strategy approach to women’s rights. Like all of its chapters, the one in New York City holds events that "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." Members receive early access invitations to NOW-NYC events and action alerts for the latest protests.
