Women's Group N.O.W-is the largest women's rights organization in the U.S. N.O.W. is an organization, found by Betty Fridean in 1966, that stands for National Organization of Women. N.O.W. seeks to eliminate discrimination of women in many settings such as employment, education, the legal system and family.
N.O.W. calls for the passage of the Equal Right Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. It would require that men and women were treated equally by law.Also to protect women from sexual harassment and other violence. N.O.W.'s first goal was to attempt to win approval of the amendment but failed when only 35
of 38 states approved it by the deadline. Since the
deadline, the amendment has been reintroduced by the Congress but never passed.
N.O.W. does marches, rallies and demonstrations to try to achieve their goals. Waves of the Women's Movement The Women's Movement started in the 1800's and the second wave occured in the 1960's to fight for equal rights. Women's Equality Action League Another group founded in 1968. This group monitored educational programs to detect inequalities in pay and promotions. This group also drew attention to the "chilly classroom climate", an environment that discourages discussion and participation of females. Women, Jobs, and Husbands Women were expected to marry at the age of 25 or younger or they would be "old maids".
Women would work for these three reasons:
divorce or death, unmarried women looking for a husband like their boss, and helping their husband start a business or support the family while the husband works for a degree. Once the husband finally gets his business going or earns his degree the wife quits working. Equal Pay When women did start working they were only payed 63% of what men were payed.
The EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission)- a U.s agency. This agency enforces the law that prohibits job discrimination because of sex, color, religion, national origin, age or disabilities.
