Welcome to the
Veteran Feminists of America


Welcome to the new home of the Veteran Feminists of America (the VFA). Here you will discover the women and men of the Second Wave of Feminism in America, what they did and what they are doing today.

On 5th Ave. NYC

From the Feminine Mystique, the Great Fifth Avenue March, the founding of NOW, Roe v. Wade to the 10 year campaign for the passage of the ERA, The Veteran Feminists of America changed the world. Today they are working hard to preserve their legacy and light others’ torches as they continue the march toward full equality under the law and leadership equity.

This website, launched in June, 2017 is entirely new. It is not only contemporary in architecture but secure and safe for you and for the VFA. It’s a different world now and we are committed to do all we can to protect us and our visitors from internet vulnerabilities. We also realize that researchers, journalists and students will be using our website as a primary resource. They will find our previous website (1992 – 03/2017) in total, precisely as it was, rebuilt here on this secure site.
