Greater Rochester NOW (National Organization for Women) Chapter
The Greater Rochester Chapter of the National
Organization for Women is an active, entirely
volunteer based, non-profit group dedicated to helping
women live better lives. Rochester NOW works in
support of women's health care issues, equality in the
workplace, and fair treatment regardless of race or
Rochester NOW members are fighting for Equal Pay for women. In New York State, women earn only 86% of what men earn, and this wage gap is even larger for women of color. African-American women earn only 66% and Hispanic women earn only 54% of what men earn. Overall, the gap between full-time working women and men in New York State is more than $8,000 annually, or what could be the equivalent of several months of rent or mortgage payments, critical savings toward the purchase of a home or a child's education, or even a full year of grocery bills. Join NOW and fight for economic justice!
