Show You Support Equal Rights...
We need legal recognition of all of our families. We need the same rights to health, pension and tax benefits as heterosexual couples. We need to stop bigoted judges who take children away from nurturing lesbian mother.
Regardless of your sexual orientation, we urge you to stand united against discrimination. By simply joining NOW or buying feminist products from our catalog, you help give us the clout and money we need to champion these issues. Contact your local NOW chapter to find out about their action plans to stop the hate.

"When my ex-husband challenged the custody of my children because I am a lesbian, my years of activism in NOW and the women's movement were returned a hundred fold."
Rosemary Dempsey, a long-time National NOW leader who won a precedent-setting lesbian custody case
"For lesbians of color, homophobia is compounded by race and sex discrimination. I am glad to see NOW linking all of the issues that are under attack by the radical right, as it gives us a perfect opportunity to bring together people with common goals."
-Mandy Carter, one of the nation's leading African-American lesbians fighting the radical right and a member of NOW's National Lesbian Rights Committee.
"As a lawyer and an activist, I know that changing laws isn't enough. We've got to work together to end the culture of discrimination."
- Susan Mackenzie, attorney at law and National NOW Board Member.
"NOW's organizing was instrumental in our successful campaign to add sexual orientation to the White House Conference on Aging's non-discrimination policy."
-Del Martin, early NOW leader and author of Lesbian Woman with Phyllis Lyon.
"Any women who is or has ever been active in the feminist movement knows that the question isn't whether you will be called a lesbian, but rather when. It's a divide and conquer tactic designed to stop us from pursuing power."
"I am a young lesbian, a feminist and an activist. NOW provided a safe and empowering place for me to be who I am."
-Amy Drayer,co-president, Scripps College NOW.
