We train women’s rights leaders and advocates, empower sexual assault survivors, and provide resources and public education in the areas of gender-based violence, workplace and economic issues, and reproductive justice.
Women’s Justice NOW is the proud charitable partner organization to NOW-NYC.
This is what we do:
We build movements. We train a forceful, diverse, volunteer-led community of feminist activists. We give individuals the tools, knowledge, and skills needed to enact real change for women and girls. We provide workshops and resources for survivors of gender-based violence to reclaim their experiences and use their voices for change.
We educate on key issues. We develop and provide programs and resources on gender-based violence, reproductive justice, and workplace and economic equality to cut through false media narratives and share the truth. We’re changing the conversation and changing culture, one issue at a time.
We protect women’s rights. We help women take control of their lives by providing critical resources that give them the support, protections, and guidance they need. We serve thousands of women annually seeking legal referrals for divorce, child custody, sexual assault, domestic violence, harassment, and much more.
Get the help you need.
We are here to answer your call. Get connected to the right resources if you’re facing divorce or custody issues, domestic violence or sexual assault, sexual harassment, employment discrimination, or if you’re in need of reproductive healthcare or low-cost legal help.
Learn about our victories.
We have delivered concrete results for survivors, persuading police or prosecutors to re-open investigations that were not properly pursued. We’re pushing the NYPD locally and DA’s offices across the country to improve their practices, and we’ve led efforts to overhaul city policies addressing sexual assault and rape.
We are changing the conversation—holding the media, our elected leaders, and the public accountable for how we address and talk about sexual assault and rape.
“You have truly been a light in a dark place.”
– A survivor helped by WJN
We have connected tens of thousands of women with legal resources and help that is free or low cost, and we have delivered one-on-one advocacy to women navigating divorce, custody, employment discrimination, and the aftermath of sexual assault.
We are delivering empowering and trauma-informed workshops to survivors of sexual assault. We are helping survivors develop strong storytelling skills that will reinforce their autonomy, healing, and self-worth and enable them to use their voices to enact change.
