NOW calls on IMF head to resign over rape allegation

From NOW's website:

"The National Organization for Women is calling on Dominique Strauss-Kahn to resign or be removed immediately from his position as managing director of the International Monetary Fund," said NOW President Terry O'Neill.

NOW will take its message public today and is encouraging women's rights supporters to join in an action outside IMF headquarters.

Who: NOW President Terry O'Neill and other feminist leaders and activists
What: Demonstration calling for resignation or removal of IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn
When: Wednesday, May 18, 5:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Where: IMF headquarters - 19th St. NW, between G and H Streets
(Foggy Bottom Metro, Blue/Orange)

"Our society has a history of downplaying the seriousness of violence against women and re-victimizing the brave women who come forward to seek justice," said O'Neill.

Do you remember NOW organizes protests to call for Bill Clinton to resign because Juanita Broadderick accused him of rape? No, I don't either.
