This site was created as a project for a Movements for Social Justice class at Bryn Mawr College. We intended to convey what we imagine a national NOW webpage would have looked like in 1970. We have no affiliation with the National Organization for Women.
The information, pictures, and news articles used for this webpage came from the following resources:
- Cohen, M. (1988). The Sisterhood: The true story of the women who changed the world. Simon & Schuster.
- Hennessee, J. (1999). Betty Friedan: Her life. New York: Random House Inc.
