With over 500,000 contributing members, the National Organization for Women (NOW) is currently the largest and best-known feminist organization in the United States. NOW was founded in 1966 to establish equality and further women’s rights through grassroots organizing, lobbying and mass activism.
Interns learn grassroots organizing skills working with the government relations, public policy, political action committees, direct marketing, communications, field organizing or racial diversity departments. NOW places a strong emphasis on building leadership skills by giving its interns responsibility and substantive work. Interns also attend workshops and discussion groups, and are encouraged to represent NOW at various meetings and actions in the Washington, D.C. area.
Open to all college, graduate or law students or recent graduates with a keen interest in women’s issues.
