NOW -- Help us keep fighting the radical right
The election is over but the war on women continues. Help NOW continue standing up against anti-woman extremists. Donate Now Dear ,

2012 was a remarkable year for women.

Candidates who said outrageous things about rape victims were defeated — like Richard Mourdock, who claimed "pregnancy resulting from rape is a gift from God." For the first time, many states defeated anti-LGBT marriage amendments, and more women (and women's rights supporters) were elected to seats in the U.S. Senate and House. And health care reform and other important women's issues, like economic security, will likely continue to move forward thanks to President Obama's re-election.

Today, I'm asking for your help. Despite these victories, this is no time to think women's rights and lives are safe. A radical fringe still controls the Republican Party, and they have no intention of letting go of their anti-woman agenda. Right-wing leaders are already laying the groundwork for a renewed assault on reproductive freedom, and have their sights on Medicare, Social Security and other programs that women count on disproportionately.

To get a head start on moving forward with a proactive agenda of our own, we're kicking off our year-end campaign so that we can continue to build on this year's critical victories for women's rights and lives.

Your year-end gift will help us build a powerful grassroots movement to stand against the growing anti-choice, anti-woman assault and support our work to:
  • Get the word out about improving — not cutting — Social Security benefits, Medicare and other programs that keep millions of women and their families out of poverty
  • Close the gender wage gap by promoting workplace policies like paid leave and equal pay for work of equal value
  • Prevent radical right-wing lawmakers from eliminating government and private insurance coverage for abortion services and denying women access to vital reproductive health care services
I have high hopes for 2013, and I am counting on your support to keep us moving in the right direction. Please, make a gift to NOW today. Thank you for all that you do for women's lives.

Signature Sincerely,

Terry O'Neill signature
