In a post-Roe v. Wade reality, the feminist community has become essential to young feminists in a way it hasn’t been since NOW’s Founding in 1966. We at NOW want to create that space for Young Feminists around the country to create a place of their own and become more involved in their community. This is how NOW Young Feminists was born!  

The NOW Young Feminists will be a caucus of NOW members under 35. Within the Young Feminists, we will have the Young Feminists National Committee, which will be the leadership of the Young Feminists and be appointed by the NOW President and our Board. Also, within the Young Feminists, we have Campus Action Networks (CANs) for undergraduate campuses and Young Feminists Action Networks (YFANs) for post-graduate campuses and young professionals. CANs and YFANs will be opportunities, for NOW, Young Feminists to gather within their community and engage in activism and organizing that is important to them and NOW’s six core values.  

What are NOW’s 6 Core Values? 

NOW Young Feminists will have a special membership rate of $10 for a Standard year, plus enjoy a discounted NOW Annual Conference Admission price of $10! NOW CAN Members are eligible to receive a FREE YEAR membership! NOW Young Feminists will also enjoy the benefits of a standard NOW Member—membership in their state chapter, the ability to affiliate with a local NOW chapter, and voting rights at the NOW Annual Conference where we set our organizing and activism goals and policy direction for the next year!
