An unparalleled exploration of NOW's trajectory, from its founding to the present — and its future.

Fighting for NOW seeks to better understand how bureaucratic structures like the National Organization for Women simultaneously provide stability and longevity, while creating space for productive and healthy conflict among members. Kelsy Kretschmer explores these ideas through an examination of conflict in NOW’s local chapters, its task forces and committees, and its satellite groups.
