NOW is a multi-issue, multi-strategy organization that takes a holistic approach to women’s rights. Our priorities are winning economic equality and securing it with an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that will guarantee equal rights for women; championing abortion rights, reproductive freedom and other women’s health issues; opposing racism; fighting bigotry against the LGBTQIA community; and ending violence against women.
Florida NOW fights for equality in pay, job opportunities, political structure, social security and education will remain elusive without a guarantee of equality in the U.S. Constitution.
Florida NOW advocates for wide range of economic justice issues affecting women including a living wage, job discrimination, pay equity, social security and pension reform & more.
Freedom from Violence
Florida NOW is unique in its approach to the issue of violence against women, emphasizing the interrelated factors and complexity of the issue.
Florida NOW is committed to fighting discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity in all areas, including employment, housing, health services, and child custody.
Florida NOW continues to fight for equal opportunities for women of color in all areas including employment, education & health care.
Florida NOW fully supports access to safe and legal abortion, to effective birth control and emergency contraception, to reproductive health services and education for all women.
These are but some of the issues which fall into the wide-ranging category of women’s concerns. We are concerned about our society’s insensitivity to the needs of the physically challenged, and the special problems of rural women and farm workers. We are very concerned about the well being of our earthly environment. We strongly believe in the separation of church and state. We are in support of a National, Single-payer Healthcare system. We expect and demand fair treatment in family court and child-custody cases. We hope that all women to care about how politics affect our lives and work toward a good relationship with legislators.
It is our fervent hope that you will work in partnership with the membership of Florida NOW and support the women of Florida in their endeavors to be recognized in all aspects of life as full citizens.
