PARKER -- read twice and ordered printed, and when printed to be committed to the Committee on Cultural Affairs, Tourism, Parks and Recreation AN ACT to amend the parks, recreation and historic preservation law, in relation to creating the "Women's rights history trail" program THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM- BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS: Section 1. The parks, recreation and historic preservation law is amended by adding a new article 42 to read as follows: ARTICLE 42 WOMEN'S RIGHTS HISTORY TRAIL PROGRAM SECTION 42.01 LEGISLATIVE INTENT. 42.03 DEFINITIONS. 42.05 GENERAL FUNCTIONS, POWERS AND DUTIES OF THE COMMISSIONER. § 42.01 LEGISLATIVE INTENT. THE LEGISLATURE RECOGNIZES THAT THE WOMEN'S RIGHTS MOVEMENT IS ONE OF THE THREE GREAT PROTEST TRADITIONS IN UNITED STATES HISTORY, SHARING THAT STATUS WITH THE STRUGGLE FOR RACIAL EQUALITY AND THE LABOR MOVEMENTS. THE LEGISLATURE FURTHER RECOGNIZES THAT THE WOMEN'S RIGHTS MOVEMENT HAS A STRONG TRADITION IN THE STATE. IN THE NINETEENTH CENTURY THE STATE WAS AT THE CUTTING EDGE OF THE WOMEN'S RIGHTS MOVEMENT. ON JULY 19, 1848, A GROUP OF ACTIVISTS INCLUDING ELIZABETH CADY STANTON, LUCRE- TIA MOTT AND MARY ANN M'CLINTOCK, CONVENED THE FIRST WOMEN'S RIGHTS CONVENTION AT WESLEYAN CHAPEL IN SENECA FALLS. DURING THE CONVENTION, 68 WOMEN AND 32 MEN SIGNED THE DECLARATION OF SENTIMENTS CALLING FOR A BROAD ARRAY OF RIGHTS FOR WOMEN, INCLUDING SUFFRAGE. IN 1868, SUSAN B. ANTHONY HELPED TO FOUND THE AMERICAN EQUAL RIGHTS ASSOCIATION. IN 1890, UNDER HER LEADERSHIP AND THE LEADERSHIP OF ELIZABETH CADY STANTON, THE NATIONAL AMERICAN WOMAN SUFFRAGE ASSOCIATION (NAWSA) WAS FORMED. NAWSA WAS INSTRUMENTAL IN SECURING PASSAGE OF THE 19TH AMENDMENT, WHICH AMENDED THE CONSTITUTION TO GIVE WOMEN THE RIGHT TO VOTE. THE 19TH EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets [ ] is old law to be omitted.
