About

The Central Oregon Coast Chapter of the National Organization for Women (NOW) works locally to eliminate discrimination against women in all sectors of society, to assure access to reproductive health care, to eliminate domestic and sexual violence, and to promote equality and justice in our community. Members of Central Oregon Coast NOW are automatically members of the Oregon Chapter and the National Organization for Women.  Most of our members reside in Lincoln County, Oregon, but that is certainly not a requirement.  We welcome anyone to join us who is interested in achieving our goals.

The National Organization for Women (NOW) has over 500,000 contributing members and is the largest feminist action organization in the United States.  NOW”S priority issues include:  Constitutional Equality Amendment, Reproductive Rights, Racism, Lesbian Rights, Violence Against Women, and Economic Justice.  Its focus actions for 2013-2014 are Marriage Equality and Breaking the Social Security Glass Ceiling (Modernizing Women’s Benefits). The Central Oregon Coast NOW works locally to address these issues.

  1. Good luck with your work. I helped to start a DV shelter in Pa. Worked there for many years. Now I blog about women’s issues. I think that young women need to understand their importance and equality. Hugs, Barbara
