Last night four of our SF NOW members were in Albuquerque to celebrate the 40th Anniverssary of The NM Women's Resource Center and The UNM Women's Studies Program. We were honored to be there for Gloria Steinem to acknowledge those feminists that worked so hard to create these two entities so long ago. Steinem was her usual graceful, personal self and spoke with intelligence and wit in a very 'sister-like' way. From her heart.
Nearly 600 people were in the UNM Ballroom; a great many for dinner – but all of us to be there with Gloria! A truly wonderful and inspiring evening!

The Santa Fe NOW / Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice fundraiser for the Pro-Choice Safety Network Fund featuring feminist author Jessica Valenti was a huge success! Thanks to everyone who volunteered, donated, and attended our events. The afternoon Meet the Author buffet at Jambo Café was completely sold out and the evening event, “A Conversation with Jessica Valenti” at The Santa Fe Woman’s Club was standing room
only! The Silent Auction was a tremendous success. We raised a lot of money for the Pro-Choice Safety Network Fund, raised awareness for Santa Fe NOW and created a forum for future actions against the War on Women in New Mexico. Here are some pictures from the afternoon and evening events.
Saturday, June 25 was a culmination of a week-long celebration of PRIDE in Santa Fe was the PRIDE March and Parade in the historic Railyard Park.
Now Santa Fe members joined in solidarity with our LGBTQ brothers and sisters to support women's issues and feminism by wearing the name of famous feminists on their back.
"Appearances" were made by Jane Addams, Hillary Clinton, Sharon Mitchell, Alice Waters, and Emma Goldman among other famous feminists. NOW members are proud that these women "have our backs" in our continued reclamation of women's rights.
