The search for women's rights does not end with the 20th century. Currently, the League of Women Voters creates and reviews political platforms with women's issues in mind. The National Organization for Women, or NOW, was created in 1966 and today has over 500,000 members in the United States. Some major goals of current women's rights groups are to strengthen the role of women in politics and in the workplace, and to look for ways to attain equal rights for women around the world.
