The state League and 47 of our local Leagues have signed on as supporters of the Women’s Equality Agenda, which would break down common barriers to equality that women face every day. You can find the entire Agenda as proposed by Governor Cuomo at http://nywomensequality.org. At this point there is no legislative language, but we expect language after the budget is enacted.
The Women’s Equality Agenda includes provisions that would advance pay equity, stop discrimination against pregnant workers, low-income families, and domestic violence survivors, and protect reproductive decision making in New York State. The state League has no position on two additional Agenda items concerning attorney’s fees or human trafficking because we have not been a subject of League study.
