South Jersey NOW–Alice Paul chapter, founded in October 1971, includes activist women and men who work to further legal, social, and political equality for women and their families. With more than 300 diverse members (ages 20 to 95 years) from Bordentown to Cape May, South Jersey NOW advocates for many issues including combating racism, the Equal Rights Amendment, reproductive rights, empowering young feminists, pay equity, and preventing violence against women. In addition, South Jersey NOW-Alice Paul chapter works to get more women elected to office, holds an annual feminist essay contest for middle and high school students, has provided clinic escorts for more than 20 years at two local clinics and works to continue the legacy of our namesake, Mt. Laurel, NJ native Alice Paul, one of America’s greatest advocates for women’s rights. Alice played a pivotal role in gaining women’s right to vote and was the author of the Equal Rights Amendment which has yet to be passed. Alice’s history of lifelong activism continues to inspire us with her passion, her courage and her determination.
