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.
