Celebrating National Women's Equality Day

 

    Tuesday, August 26th is Women’s Equality Day. 

    New York State has a long, proud tradition of leading the way with women’s rights. 

    There is still work to be done and my colleagues and I in the Senate passed bills that will further strengthen equality in our state. 

    Among other key objectives, the Women’s Equality Agenda will: 

    - Ensure equal pay for equal work;

    - Combat sexual harassment and domestic violence; and

    - Toughen Human Trafficking laws. 

    Unfortunately, the Assembly has refused to take action on these important bills.
