Random Questions...Random Days

On this day in 1966 The National Organization for Women was organized. Please comment.

To be honest, until I read this question, I had no idea that this organization existed. So I looked it up (researching is something I do well )

National Organization For Women...

"Since its founding in 1966, NOW's goal has been to take action to bring about equality for all women. NOW works to eliminate discrimination and harassment in the workplace, schools, the justice system, and all other sectors of society; secure abortion, birth control and reproductive rights for all women; end all forms of violence against women; eradicate racism, sexism and homophobia; and promote equality and justice in our society."

I really don't know what to say about this. I have never been one for feminism. I am sure that this organization did wonders for helping women get into and becoming respected in the work force back at a time when women would never have been considered for positions. I guess, being a woman, I am thankful for that.
