In his 2013 State of the State address, Governor Andrew Cuomo proposed the Women's Equality Act, a 10-point plan to advance women's rights in New York State. The Act aims to achieve pay equity, end pregnancy and family status discrimination, strengthen human-trafficking laws, and protect a woman's right to choose, among other goals.
Many state lawmakers have already championed these causes in Albany. If yours has, please thank them. If not, please urge them to do so. Join Council Member Jessica Lappin in supporting the Women's Equality Act by signing here.
