“Where We Are Now and What To Do Moving Forward”

The result of the 2016 presidential election poses a real threat to the rights and well-being of women. Moving forward, the National Organization for Women urges social justice and women’s rights activists to direct and amplify their activism to ensure that reproductive healthcare and abortion rights are protected, to end voter suppression and prioritize voting rights as a feminist issue, and to vehemently protect the Affordable Care Act.
