Who We Are
We are the Bluegrass Chapter of the National Organization for Women, the largest feminist organization in the U.S., started in 1966. Est. 1987 and based in Lexington, KY, Bluegrass NOW is a diverse group of hundreds of women and men who believe that we, and our sisters, daughters, and mothers, should be equal under the law, including the choice of whether and when to bear children. We fight for a variety of issues including but not limited to: Abortion Rights/Reproductive Freedom, Constitutional Equality, Promoting Diversity, Ending Racism, Lesbian and Gay Rights, Economic Justice for Women, and Ending Violence Against Women. We are an all-volunteer organization and are dedicated to seeing that women are better represented in America's legislatures, businesses, and boardrooms. We support the principle that everyone should be equal under the law. "Definition: A feminist is a person who believes that women should have political, economic and social rights equal to those of men."
