Why is @nationalNow supporting the US #EqualityAct and insisting "trans women are women" and there's "no debate"? Well I did some digging to find out. +
Since it's founding in 1966, the National Organization for Women, @nationalnow, has had as it's non-profit purpose to "take action to achieve full equality for women in the United States." But that changed in 2016. +
In 2016, @NationalNOW changed it's purpose to "to take action through intersectional grassroots activism to promote feminist ideals & lead societal change." After 50 years of working for equality for women, they've decided that feminism is about 'ideals" & all social problems?! +
But of course there is more to the story. Once they made the change to their purpose, their income DOUBLES from 2016 to 2017. Or, it could be fear of Trump or a backlash which increased their membership. However, there is more. +
In 2018 they formally adopt a trans-inclusive policy. The change of purpose in 2016 paved the way for that. NOW is officially no longer a women's equality organization. Imagine the glee of men who have successfully taken over NOW & their formal endorsements as 'feminists'! +
@nationalnow has also vigorously supported the regressive US #EqualityAct which undermines the #ERA because with the Equality Act, 'gender identity' will replace 'sex' in the law. +
I love this response to NOW pushing for the #ERANow while also advocating for the #EqualityAct because they are most definitely working at cross-purposes! +
@NationalNOW is a disgrace. They'll only get worse as they embrace all the trans mantras & destroy women's rights while purporting to fight for them. And this is my compilation on why the US #EqualityAct is anti-women & NOW has no business endorsing it.
This change likely started at the chapter level where it's surprisingly easy to hijack an org due to low voter turnout among members. Also note that @NationalNOW would now be in the process of "recommending to its chapters to review their bylaws to reflect inclusivity." +
Some chapters may not be on board with this change. Check with your local @NationalNOW chapter to find out. #WomensRightsAreHumanRights #AbortionIsAWomansRight NO to the US #EqualityAct as it nullifies the #ERA and all sex-based protections!
