Additional panelists to be announced soon.



NOW is unique in its approach to the issue of violence against women, emphasizing that there are many interrelated aspects to the issue — domestic violence; sexual assault; sexual harassment; violence at abortion clinics; hate crimes across lines of gender, sexuality and race; the gender bias in our judicial system that further victimizes survivors of violence; and the violence of poverty emphasized by the radical right’s attacks on poor women and children — all of which result from society’s attitudes toward women and efforts to “keep women in their place.”

Ending violence against women is one of NOW's and MCNOW's six core issues. Our other core issues are: reproductive rights and justice, racial justice, LGBTQIA+ rights, economic justice, and constitutional equality.
