Do You Know Your Women’s History?

Without women, quite simply, there wouldn’t be a history to speak of — for women or men. In spite of this, the efforts of women throughout history have often not been written down. Think about this - the field of Women's studies is only about 75 years-old. And their contributions. We want to focus on modern women's history because there's been so much change in the last century. This quiz offers 35 questions trying to redress the balance by considering the impact of women in America’s politics, society, arts, sports and more.

Here's to the next hundred years of equality for Women both in America and around the world!

The National Organization for Women was founded in 1966 to promote action through grassroots activism. Today this arm of the women’s movement is the largest organization of grassroots feminist activists with hundreds of chapters nationwide.

NOW was founded by 49 individuals — 28 women who signed on at the Third National Conference of Commissions on the Status of Women, and another 21 women and men who joined at the NOW Organizing Conference later that year.

The organization was initially founded because the time had “come for a new movement toward true equality for all women in America, and toward a fully equal partnership of the sexes, as part of the world-wide revolution of human rights now taking place within and beyond our national borders.”
