The National Organization for Women (NOW) is a renowned American feminist organization that was established in 1966. It is legally recognized as a 501 (c) (social welfare) organization and consists of 550 chapters in all 50 U. S. states, with around 500,000 members. NOW is considered one of the leading liberal feminist organizations in the U.
Department of State and advocates for gender equality within the existing political system. The organization campaigns for constitutional equality, economic justice, reproductive rights, LGBTQIA+ rights and racial justice, and against violence against women. NOW also takes legal action against groups that use violence or threaten violence to gain support. Additionally, the group supports the Equal Rights Amendment and works to provide women with explicit protections in the U.
Constitution. The main objectives of NOW are to identify and respect the reality of the couple, to work to heal the trauma of betrayal, to focus on personal care, to learn and establish personal and relational limits, to obtain support from other women in similar circumstances, and to develop personal empowerment skills. To achieve these goals, NOW depends on financial contributions from individuals, families, companies, other foundations and private institutions that believe in supporting social change. The Texas Women's Foundation is honored to organize and support three Giving Circles that allow its members to combine resources to provide impactful grants to effective organizations.
