Member Inflation

According to a new book, the National Organization for Women (NOW), which claims to have a membership of 500,000 women, cannot possibly have more than 57,000 members, and even that number is most likely too high. The author, Kimberly Schuld, arrived at her conclusion through an analysis of tax returns, corporate foundation reports, etc., as well as "insider information" from former NOW officers.

So the next time you hear that NOW represents a great number of American women and their views, remember: that "great number" is only about 50,000 strong.
