State senator Alessandra Biaggi (D-N.Y.) connected the bill’s success to increased participation of women in government office. “For the last two years, we have been facing major threats to women’s rights, and we have not taken them lying down,” she said. “We are organizing. We are running for office. And we are making sure that the law reflects our values.”
