Biographical / Historical Note
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.
These monthly newsletters, published as the Women’s Community Center Newsletter between 1978 and October 1984, were intended to provide a feminist communication network for the Eau Claire area. They include brief articles concerning equal rights for women, reproductive rights, local wants for women, and national and local NOW activities. Also included in this collection are the minutes from a June 5, 1978 Board of Directors Meeting and minutes from an August 2, 1978 General Meeting.
