National Council of Women’s Organizations

The National Council of Women’s Organizations (NCWO) is a 501c3 nonpartisan, nonprofit coalition that represents over 11 million women across the United States. The NCWO has over 200 member organizations who collaborate through substantive policy work and grass roots activism to address issues of concern to women, including family and work, economic equity, education, affirmative action, older women, corporate accountability, women and technology, reproductive freedom, women’s health, younger women and global progress for women’s equality.

Together, the NCWO membership subscribes to the core policies found on the Policy Agenda page. While not all member organizations work actively on each of these concerns, members will not work in opposition to these principles.

NCWO recognizes the importance of improving programs and policies that address girls’ and women’s economic, legal, social and physical well-being throughout their lifespan. Its policy agenda comprises building blocks for a society free from the inequality, oppression and discrimination that face a variety of women and girls from many different backgrounds and experiences.
