Albany, NYJune 20, 2013 - “Today, the Assembly passed the Women’s Equality Act, bringing us one step closer to addressing gender inequalities in our state and restoring New York as a national leader of women’s rights. The Assembly had the courage to stand up on behalf of the women of New York, and now the Senate must do the same. Each and every part of the Women’s Equality Act is vitally important to the future of women in our state and New Yorkers deserve to know where all their elected representatives stand on all of them.”
