NOW President Terry O’Neill to Visit Penn State

Terry O’Neill, president of the National Organization for Women, is slated to come to campus to speak about reproductive rights at 2 p.m. on September 15 in 101 Thomas.

NOW is a leader in pro-choice activism in the United States, arguing that birth control, abortion, the agency to choose individual health care choices are basic human rights. The organization believes men and women need to be educated on the subject of women’s reproductive rights because the government attacks those rights daily.

The presentation in Thomas Building is open to the public and will examine the current climate of reproductive rights in the country. Following O’Neill’s planned discussion, there will be a question and answer session.

The event is sponsored by Triota, the academic women’s studies honor society, and the Center for Women Students. O’Neill’s visit will be Triota’s first major function of the year.

For more information regarding O’Neill’s visit, contact Triota President Rebecca Guldin at [email protected].
