Statement from NOW President Terry O'Neill
Hillary Clinton 2016 Presidential Candidacy Announcement 4/12/2015
I welcome Hillary Clinton’s candidacy for President in 2016 because gender matters in the United States today, and Hillary Clinton’s life experiences as a woman give her knowledge, insights, and wisdom that others do not have. That’s good for our politics and good for our country. Secretary Clinton’s candidacy is a powerful message to girls that they can aspire to the highest office, and an equally powerful message to boys that women can be leaders on an equal footing with men. That’s a transformative milestone in our society that is long overdue. NOW and NOW activists have been working steadily since the 1960s for women’s rights, and we were proud when feminist leaders like Congresswoman Shirley Chisholm, Congresswoman Patricia Schroeder and Ambassador Carol Moseley Braun ran for President and during Congresswoman Geraldine Ferraro’s historic campaign for vice president. They helped make Hillary Clinton’s journey possible. The National Organization for Women is always on the side of making history, and we love the sound of barriers breaking down.
