The Legislative Women's Caucus is a bipartisan and bicameral caucus of women elected to the New York State Legislature. Today, 69 women serve in both the Assembly and the Senate. These women represent urban, suburban and rural districts across New York State.
Through the Caucus, women state legislators work to:
- Improve the participation of women in all areas of government;
- Support issues that affect and benefit women and families in New York State; and
- Provide a network of support for women in the State Legislature
Since its beginning in 1983, the Caucus has worked closely with women's organizations and concerned individuals across the state, as well as with the Governor, state agencies and other legislators to advocate for programs and services that benefit women and families.
