Welcome

....to the North/Northwest Suburban (Chicago) Chapter of the National Organization for Women. We are dedicated to furthering feminist issues for women including employment, sexual harassment, pay equity, reproductive choice, sexual violence, and educational issues.

Our intention is to make a difference in the lives of women through several key projects each year, and through community outreach and political activities. Educating and empowering the women of Chicago's North and Northwest Suburbs is the mission of our all volunteer staff. We welcome your feedback and participation!
