Since its founding in 1966, the National Organization for Women (NOW) has strived to establish equality for all women. NOW works to eliminate discrimination and harassment in the workplace, schools, the justice system, and all other sectors of society; secure abortion, birth control and reproductive rights for all women; end all forms of violence against women; eradicate racism, sexism and homophobia; and promote equality and justice in our society. As of 2007, there is no NOW chapter in the Eau Claire area.
