The National Organization for Women supports and opposes a great deal of legislation at any given time.  Perhaps the best way for you to find a great deal of information about this is to visit the legislative action section of their website.  You can find it here.

At that link, you can find many examples of legislation that they support and oppose.  For example, they support the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2011.  They feel that this law would do important things to protect women from various sorts of violence such as domestic violence and sexual assault.  On the other hand, they oppose the Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act, which would make it more difficult for teens to get abortions outside of their own home state.
