Following the example of the black civil rights movement, many other groups, including women, began to work to achieve fuller rights for themselves. Just as there were divisions within the civil rights movement, women held differing views on what their goals should be and how best to achieve them. In this discussion, you’ll explore the views of the National Organization for Women (NOW), founded in 1966, and the Redstockings, founded in 1968. The former pursued a more moderate approach, seeking full attainment of natural rights for women; the latter pursued a more radical agenda, seeking to remake some structures of society.
