CAUSES

Becoming a member of WV NOW underscores your commitment to women's rights in the state. West Virginia has one of the worst rankings for  women's equality nationwide. We at WV NOW want to change that. We have made many important gains over the years and want to make West Virginia one of the best states for its treatment of women. To become a member, please go to the National NOW website and sign up under West Virginia.

West Virginia NOW currently has chapters in the Charleston Area (Kanawha Valley NOW, or KVNOW), Morgantown and the newly formed Eastern Panhandle (EP NOW). All chapters can be found on Facebook or if you need further help, call or email us for more information. You can also use the contact form below on this page to send a message. Please get in touch!

At West Virginia NOW, we are dedicated to supporting national efforts to work in a few key areas, including reproductive rights, voter registration and election transparency, continuing to end violence against women, and promoting pay equality. These will aid in creating a better life for women in the State of WV. It is a well-documented fact that the more empowered women are, the better the quality of life is for children and families.
