NATIONAL ORGANIZATION FOR WOMEN --------------- West Volusia Chapter

Home | Members Marching

Welcome graphic

Now is the time to fight the War on Women!  Every day battles are happening that erode every gain that women have made.  While we sleep each freedom and right is being taken away.  We need you now more than ever!

The West Volusia Florida Chapter of NOW is a small and growing, active group of women and men.  We have been in this area and actively speaking out since 1979.  We support the equal rights of women in all areas.  NOW is the largest grass roots activist organization in the US.  At the local level we work on issues that are relevant to our own community. 
 
How YOU can help.  Florida is one of the three states that can finally get the ERA passed.  We still do not have the Equal Rights Amendment to the Constitution.  Call your State Legislators.  Get it passed.
 
Join us for local events and issues!

During this convention trip, we participated in a march on the Tennessee capitol.  Our members participated to show we really are out there exposing our feminism.  You know..... Feminism.. the movement to win political, economic, and social equality for women.

To The Wild Woman Within
Take your power
Take the world
Face the day
Face reality
Alter your personality
Listen to the wild woman within
 
Put down your nice words
Put down your sweetness
Put down your naivete
You are you-no one's chattel
Don't listen to male prattle
Listen to the wild woman within
 
Follow your heart
Follow your intuition
Follow the freedom path
Be you adolescent or crone
Your psyche is your own
Listen to the wild woman within
