Kim Gandy (born January 25, 1954) is an American feminist and the president of the National Organization for Women (NOW).

Gandy was born in Bossier City in northwestern Louisiana to Alfred Kenneth Gandy and Roma R. Gandy (1927-1998), a native of Pennsylvania. Her father was an officer of the former Bossier Bank and Trust Company, an institution organized during the 1920s by her grandfather, W.A. Gandy. After Roma's death, A.K. Gandy married the former Shirley S. Lacobee (1925-2004) of Shreveport. Kim Gandy had a younger sister, who, like their mother, died of cancer.

Kim Gandy graduated from Louisiana Tech University in Ruston, the seat of Lincoln Parish, where she earned a bachelor of science degree in mathematics.
