New York needs laws as strong as the women of our state. New Yorkers can no longer let politics stand in the way of women’s lives.

Our state needs a Women’s Equality Agenda to update our laws to reflect the reality of women’s lives today. The New York State Legislature needs to finish the work that has been started and make a Women’s Equality Agenda a reality for the women of New York state.

The measures of the Women’s Equality Agenda reflect the complexity of women’s lives — economic security, access to reproductive health and freedom from violence — are all essential to women’s equality. Women deserve the comprehensive package of women’s equality measures. The Assembly passed the Women’s Equality Act on Jan. 27.

We strongly encourage the New York State Senate to take action. This should not be a difficult vote for representatives who care about women and their well-being. It is crucial for our lawmakers to take action to upgrade our laws and ensure full equality for the 10 million women of New York state.
