Clare Sheridan welcomed
Muriel Fox, who, while living in Tappan, made history with Betty Friedan when they and other prominent feminists founded the National Organization for Women (NOW) in 1966. A powerhouse herself, Muriel Fox is a world traveler, feminist, wife, mother, and retired public relations executive who was once included in Business Week magazine's list of "100 Top Corporate Women.”

Fox spoke about her career and her work with NOW, as well as her contributions to other organizations, including those located right here in Rockland County. She shared exciting news about 2021, when she and other feminists around the globe will celebrate the 100th birthday of Betty Friedan with an event that will take place on February 4 at 7pm.  For more information, visit
