Workshop Information
On our website you can find a sample of some of the workshop topics (currently works in progress) for the 2010 National NOW Conference. Our workshops focus on core issues affecting women today, including but not limited to reproductive rights, ratifying women's constitutional rights, economic justice for women, LGBT rights, promoting racial diversity, ending violence against women, and health and body image issues. Our workshop panels are lead by activists and experts, with intimate settings so that feminists walk away with the tools and knowledge to make an impact.
