N/NW Suburban NOW Chapter Membership Meeting Agenda – Wed., Feb. 19, 7 p.m.
1. Now that ERA has passed in Virginia, we’ll discuss what we can we do to support its enactment by the U.S. Congress.
2. Melissa Isaacson (author, sportswriter and Northbrook resident) will be featured at a book event co-sponsored by the Northbrook Public Library and our NOW chapter on March 17, 2020. Melissa’s book focuses on sports programs for girls and women after the federal law Title IX was passed in 1972. Title IX prohibits sex discrimination in educational programs. This law opened the door for female participation in high school and college athletics.
3. We are co-sponsoring The Illusionists documentary screening/discussion with the Indian Trails Public Library in Wheeling, Ill., at 355 Schoenbeck Road on April 21, 2020, at 7 p.m. The documentary looks at the dark side of the advertising industry and its effect on women’s body image.
4. We are developing plans for a Planned Parenthood event to raise awareness. Date not yet decided
