EEOC Petition

Five NOW officers and 35 members have filed a formal petition with the EEOC for hearings to amend the regulations on classified job advertising that permit segregation of “help wanted” ads on the basis of sex.

NOW has threatened the Commission with a mandamus action to compel enforcement of the prohibition against sex discrimination, has initiated a campaign to persuade President Johnson to extend Executive Order 11246 (prohibiting discrimination by federal contractors) to include women, and demanded the EEOC show its own commitment to ending sex discrimination by appointing qualified women to its top staff.
