After Harvey Weinstein was unmasked as a serial sexual predator, millions of victims of harassment and assault came forward to say #MeToo. More women keep coming forward every day.
Nearly every day, people ask me: will this be the turning point? Can this really become a movement that ends sexual violence?
NOW called for Harvey Weinstein’s removal from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences–and we achieved our goal. But the Weinstein case brings into focus what women already knew: the problem goes way beyond one powerful man.
Sexual violence is an epidemic–and we see it everywhere from the halls of Fox News to the street corners in our neighborhoods. It’s deeply rooted in our culture and it needs to change.
But we’ll never accomplish that goal without support from grassroots activists, like you.
Women around the world have shared their stories–breaking the silence around sexual harassment and assault. That was an amazing first step.
Our next step: to show just how many feminists are committed to taking action.
“Women Win on Election Night 2017”
Statement by NOW President Toni Van Pelt
November 7, 2017 Washington, DC – Feminists swept battleground states and districts this election night–proving just how strong #TheResistance can be.
We’re thrilled that Virginia and New Jersey will be led by Ralph Northam and Phil Murphy–candidates who will champion feminist policies as governors. Virginia voters elected progressives up and down the ballot, and we are especially proud to congratulate NOW leader Hala Ayala on her election to the Virginia House of Delegates.
Tonight’s message is clear: the time to elect feminists is NOW! NOW members and grassroots activists rolled up their sleeves, and got out the vote for the candidates who care about women’s rights–and their hard work paid off.
This is just a taste of what’s to come. We know that NOW activists will keep working hard, and keep winning–on November 6, 2018 and beyond.
