Be sure to check out the CALL TO ACTION page!


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.  


You can get involved now by:

  • Joining NOW to be a part of the feminist solution for equality
  • Taking action on national issues
  • Donating to help us fight the radical right's anti-woman agenda

Also, make sure to join us on Facebook and Twitter to stay in the loop!



Our members set our organizational policy and work autonomously at the state and local levels to build and strengthen more equitable communities. By becoming an NOW member, you can help us achieve our mission: equality for women and girls. When you join NOW, you can elect to join one of our chapters - Cedar Rapids, Des Moines, Johnson County, Quad Cities, or Sioux City Area. If you choose not to affiliate with a local chapter, you will be designated as an Iowa member-at-large.Your membership covers national, state and local dues.
