RI NOW takes action to bring women into full participation in all aspects of public and private life without experiencing barriers based on gender. We seek to create a world where all women and girls have access to comprehensive health care services, are free from violence in all forms, have achieved economic equality, have equal rights regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity, and are free from racism which diminishes us all. We accomplish this in the State of Rhode Island as we successfully empower women, including ourselves, to be the difference we wish to see in the world.
