take action

"The National Organization for Women is calling on Dominique Strauss-Kahn to resign or be removed immediately from his position as managing director of the International Monetary Fund," said NOW President Terry O'Neill.

NOW will take its message public today and is encouraging women's rights supporters to join in an action outside IMF headquarters.

Who: NOW President Terry O'Neill and other feminist leaders and activists
What: Demonstration calling for resignation or removal of IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn
When: Wednesday, May 18, 5:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Where: IMF headquarters - 19th St. NW, between G and H Streets
(Foggy Bottom Metro, Blue/Orange)

"Our society has a history of downplaying the seriousness of violence against women and re-victimizing the brave women who come forward to seek justice," said O'Neill.

"NOW will closely monitor how law enforcement, the courts and the media handle the Strauss-Kahn case. Blaming and shaming the woman who was allegedly attacked and employing gender, racial, ethnic, economic or other stereotypes to discredit her are absolutely unacceptable."
