B. Campaigning to get women elected to political offices.

D. Focusing on the area of workplace inequality.

A

Answer: A. Creating subcommittees to deal with inequality.

The National Organization for Women in 1966 was formed to deal with the problem of inequality existing in the United States. As a result of the failure of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in the enforcement of the Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, NOW was formed.

The founders of this organization were frustrated with how the federal government was ignorant in enforcing new anti-discrimination laws. In the workplace, fewer women were hired and there was unequal pay among men and women with women being at the receiving end of low payment. The drive for equal rights for men and women led to the founding of the National Organization for Women.
