“Our greatest fear is not that we are inadequate but that we are powerful beyond measure.” — Marianne Williamson

Who We Are

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, equal pay, equality in the workplace, and fair treatment regardless of race or sexual orientation.

Rochester NOW and WELD (Women Empowerment Liberation and Defense) stand
outside Strong Hospital with signs showing support for doctors and their staff
who provide abortions.


Meetings usually are held the third Monday of the month at the Five Star Bank, City Gate Branch, Community Room, 395 Westfall Rd. (in the Costco shopping plaza). Check our events page for meeting topic, time and location.
