A long-time feminist activist whose campaign resume noted that she had an illegal abortion in 1968 has been elected as the new president of the National Organization for Women.
Toni Van Pelt, 69, who has been active for decades in NOWs Florida affiliates, was elected Saturday night at the organizations national conference in Orlando, Florida.
Elected as vice president was her running mate, Gilda Yazzie, a Navajo Indian from Durango, Colorado.

Fine send them over to the Middle east where they are needed to crusade for women’s rights.
Nags Of the World
Guess they cant find anyone younger.
Ugly, almost 70 years old, rabid leftist, bragged about having an illegal abortion—bwah hah hah hah! Perfect choice, another nasty hag like HRC and Pocahontas. Another nasty old white leader in the Rat party, I love it.
And the FemiNazis in NOW don’t understand why they can’t grow their membership with young women, LMAO!
Well theres a pelt nobody will buy .......
Oh, man. The image, it hurts!
Odds are the illegal abortion was done by a physician according to the CDC.
Safe and legal are not synonyms
Tony defeated her black rival who would have been the first black national president of NOW.
Only goes to show that NOW—like Planned Parenthood—is run by a bunch of condescending, patronizing nasty white women.
Did ya know? that in 1968 there were more abortion deaths from legal abortions than illegal abortion according to the CDC MMWR
Even the leftist media seems to ignore NOW in recent years. It is as if they realize that NOW leaders are just an embarrassment.
Apparently the availibility pool are already past their expiration date.
Their last national convention attracted 50 people. They were done decades ago.
My apologies for such ...... stay safe !
NOW would have disappeared decades ago if not for the fawning MSM propping it up and giving it free publicity and legitimacy.
Even with numberless hours of breathless, favorable coverage, the membership is so low they refuse to disclose the numbers.
Probably enough to fit into a phone booth is all.
Van pelt was the name of the Hunter in Jumanji. I wonder if the name is synonymous with maniacal...
Also Lucy’s family name, in “Peanuts”.

N.O.W. /National Organization for Women, “The Women’s Movement,” turns out to have been, like the Black Lives Matters” movement and the Homosexual Movement to have been a way for Marxists to divide populations against themselves, by fanning the flames of hate that would divide the country. Just listen to one of the last of those, Gloria Steinem, to realize what a sorry, deluded lot they are. The Marxists have blown a last breath into the “Women’s Movement” so that they can be another named organization existing as propaganda for the homosexual agenda and the movement to use racial politics for pretty much everything. Those truly pathetic unladylike, without core modesty genital beanies invented and worn by some of the ugliest women one can find anywhere tell the story best.
