NC NOW was well represented at the Veteran Feminists of America “Sharing Our Stories” event on 3/31/17. NC NOW members from Raleigh, Durham, Charlotte, Fayetteville and the Triad area were honored. NOW was mentioned repeatedly by activists as where they learned the skills that helped them for the rest of their lives. The scholars and the historians talked about their research and discussed topics right along with the activists. It would be great to get some of their books for NC NOW’s office library.

The Charlotte NOW chapter convened on July 5, 1972 and Charlotte NOW President Cindy Thomson was there. Thomson and another one of the original members of Charlotte NOW are presenting on chapter history for Women’s History Month. Thomson has stayed active with NOW all these years!
In February 2017, Charlotte NOW did a presentation on Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony, who were part of the First Feminist Wave. At this March event, Charlotte NOW will talk about the Second Wave Feminism that began in the mid-1960’s. Maybe you have a story to share. And if you are part of the Third Wave, beginning in the 1990’s, they’d love to hear from you, too.
In addition to the history program, Charlotte NOW members will elect new officers. If you are a member and wish to be more involved, e-mail cltnow at yahoo.com or join online here.

December is busy with some celebrating and some reminiscing. Indoor event in Raleigh on Tuesday, Dec. 6, 2016. Outdoor holiday parade and march in Durham on Saturday, Dec. 10.
Join Raleigh NOW on Tuesday, Dec. 6, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of NOW with the documentary “She’s beautiful when she’s angry,” looking at why NOW was founded. Think about how far we’ve come. On the flip side, I am sure we’ll want to discuss how far we still need to go, as shown with the presidential campaigning and election.
