On-site child care is provided during this conference free of charge for those NOW members who registered for it in advance.

Child care is offered on Friday from 8:00 AM to 7:00 PM, on Saturday from 8:30 AM to 6:30 PM, and on Sunday from 8:30 AM to 4:15 PM.
Meals are not provided; parents or guardians must pick up their children for lunch and dinner, which allows caregivers to take meal breaks as well. If you have any further questions regarding child care, please check at the Conference Office.
Feminist Foremothers Event
Fourth of July weekend is a time that traditionally focuses on men, such as the Founding Fathers. This event is a positive celebration of women's history in Boston and an opportunity to talk about and honor the Founding Mothers of the United States, as well as other women who have contributed to this country's society. It is a chance to remember historically significant women and our nation's founding through the struggles of both men and women.
To find out how you can participate, please stop by the Boston NOW table in the Plaza Ballroom.
