August 26th is national Women's Equality Day, which commemorates the anniversary of national women's suffrage. This day marks a turning point in history of the struggle for equal treatment of women and women's rights. This has been an historic year for New York State in the ongoing mission to protect, strengthen and further advance women's rights. With the Women's Equality Agenda, containing new laws such as equal pay for women, we can continue to make progress in the ongoing effort to advance women's rights.
