Mainstream lefty groups are inching away from the Women’s March as the organization implodes over anti-Semitism among its leadership and assorted abuses of power.
Even NOW has announced that it will no longer back Tamika Mallory and Linda Sarsour’s Farrakhan love in.
The National Organization for Women (NOW), perhaps the most prominent feminist organization in the country, announced on Friday that it would no longer provide financial support to the Women’s March “until the current questions regarding leadership are resolved.” A petition urging March leaders to step down has also gathered more than 8,000 signatures.
NOW is not fully severing ties. It “will participate and organize members to attend the March” on January 19 of next year, the statement said. But the announcement remains significant as the first major sponsor to cut financial support.
While NOW may be pulling out, part of the way, the National Council of Jewish Women, The Forward, JFREJ, etc will go on backing the Women’s March.
