Task Force on Women In Poverty – 1967

The Task Force on Women in Poverty urged the board of NOW to call a national conference on “Women in Poverty” to deal with special problems of women in poverty and urged women to attend such conferences held by other groups to speak directly for the rights and needs of women. Discriminatory practices within the Job Corps and other poverty programs were deplored. Action was urged of the membership to correct unequal representation of women on policy-making bodies of poverty programs.
