The Dubuque Iowa chapter of the National Organization for Women (NOW) was organized in late 1973 by a small group of women from the University of Dubuque and the surrounding community to improve and expand the role of women in society. The group supported the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) and worked to keep abortion safe and legal, to eliminate sexist language and images in education, and to make communities safe for women.

March 5, 1958: An obsolete Sherman tank, named for the Civil War general William Tecumseh Sherman and bought on surplus, was used to demolish obsolete housing at 57th Street and Broadway in New York. But it toppled the old Army barracks on top of it, and its operators were briefly trapped inside, till a “power scoop” came to free them, unhurt. Photo: Patrick A. Burns/The New York Times
