NOW Activists Elect New President, Alum and Past Professor Terry O’Neill

June 30, 2009

The National Organization for Women (NOW) recently elected Tulane Law School alum Terry Anne O’Neill to a four-year term as its new president. The 1980 Tulane law graduate also is a former professor of her alma mater.

According to its website, NOW is the ‘largest grassroots feminist organization in the country.’ O’Neill, who served as the group’s membership vice president from 2001 to 2005, will succeed President Kim Gandy upon her retirement on July 20.

“NOW is the organization that fights for the rights of all women no matter the circumstances of their birth, their race or sexual orientation, no matter if they live in poverty or are trying to escape violence,” O’Neill stated in an article posted on NOW’s website. “Women are fed up with persistent inequality and are ready for change. I am honored and eager to lead NOW in making that change.”
