Ending Violence Against Women
NOW recognizes violence against women as the broad and interconnected issue that it is. Violence against women manifests in many ways – domestic violence; sexual assault and harassment; abortion clinic violence; hate crimes motivated by gender, sexual orientation and race – and is perpetuated through the gender bias in our judicial system and systems of economic oppression. Our work to end violence against women seeks to address these structural problems in our nation and also challenge society’s attitudes toward women, both of which limit women’s freedom and agency.
