NOW's papers are at the Schlesinger Library at Harvard University. However,
you must request permission from NOW in DC to use the papers and they are
terrible at responding to requests.

I have a couple of suggestions: some may speak specifically of NOW and
others may have detailed bibliographies that would be useful to look into:

Ethel Klein, *Gender Politics*
Verta Taylor, *Social Movement Continuity*
Sara Evans *Born for Liberty*
Alice Echols, *Daring to be Bad*
Georgia Duerst-Lahti, "The Government's Role in Building the Women's
Carol McClurg Mueller, *Collective Consciousness*
Aldon Morris and Carol McClurg Mueller, *Frontiers in Social Movement

The last one is a theory book, but it has good, detailed information
about the women's rights movement. I would also contact the NOW directly
for additional information and supplemental advice.

Best of luck,
