It should be known that NOW was probably the first organization to come out for Gay Rights , and lesbian feminists in NYCNOW were the first to come out personally. After the hugely successful Strike for Equality in 1970 feminism was at last treated as a legitimate cause by most of the media, but supporting gay and lesbian rights was still a daring thing to do. It caused dissention in the NY chapter for a while, as some thought this would destroy NOW's credibility , but "sisterhood" won out, and even Betty Friedan, who at first had feared it would destroy NOW, came to support rights of homosexuals.
