CA NOW Speaks Up for Gender Equality!


The California Chapter of the National Organization for Women (NOW) is the largest feminist organization in the state with one goal – women’s equality and empowerment.  The President of California NOW, Patricia Bellasalma, has spent three decades fighting for women. Because of her outstanding work on behalf of women, Patricia was named one of Ms. Magazine’s “Women of the Year” 2002.  Patricia joins Speak Up! to talk more about California NOW’s most recent work to discover the gender impact on bills in front of the California Legislature–actions that could lead the way for other states.
