Iowa NOW is the umbrella under which local Iowa chapters of the National Organization for Women operate and is an activist rather than a direct services organization. We seek to effect change through lobbying, advocacy, education and protest.  The best way you can help Iowa NOW is to advocate for issues that forward NOW's six priority action items.  These priority items are reproductive rights, ending sex discrimination/constitutional equality, promoting diversity and ending racism, economic justice, stopping violence against women, and LGBTQ rights. This advocacy can be done in a variety of ways, including attending protests/rallies, contacting your representatives on pending legislation, and educating others on NOW's mission.

Women's Equality Day is August 26


Women's Equaity Day celebrates women winning the right to vote with the ratification of the of the 19th amendment 97 years ago. The figth for women's rights to vote was launched in 1878, and it took 42 years to finally achieve ratification on August 26, 1920.


The 45-year fight for the ERA continues! The ratification effort began in 1972, and we only need 2 more states to ratify it before it becomes the 28th amendment to the constitution.
