National Organization for Women (NOW) first ever, Virtual Chapter called Young Feminists and Allies (YFA). Our purpose is to help bring young women, men and non-gender-conforming individuals into feminist activism and give a greater voice to young feminists, who feel underrepresented at times. We also want to work with our allies of ALL AGES to foster an intergenerational exchange. We want YOU—feminists of ALL AGES, to join us.

NOW-NYS Applauds Passage of Landmark Hate Crimes Legislation
In a campaign promise fulfilled, President Obama signed the first significant
pro-lesbian, pro-woman, pro-disability rights legislation today. The Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act expands the 1969
federal hate crimes law to include sexual orientation, gender, gender identity and disability.
Now let's insist that he get the Equal Rights Amendment passed so that all women in the United States will be represented in the US Constitution.
