The Women's Equality Act
New York has long served as a model for equality and fairness, including being a leader in advancing and protecting women’s rights. A woman can only be an equal citizen when she can make her own decisions about health care, including pregnancy.
The NY Women’s Equality Coalition supports the Women’s Equality Agenda, a groundbreaking plan to break down the barriers that cause discrimination against women. The plan includes these ten points:
• Equal Pay for Equal Work
• Stop sexual harassment in all workplaces
• Ensure just restitution for victims of discrimination
• Strengthen human trafficking laws
• End discrimination against families
• End discrimination against tenants
• Stop housing discrimination
• End pregnancy discrimination once and for all
• Protect domestic violence victims seeking orders of protection
• Protect reproductive health care decisions
Planned Parenthood Hudson Peconic is proud to be part of the NY Women’s Equality Coalition, a group of more than 550 organizations supporting the Women’s Equality Agenda. Tell your legislator you stand with the 80% of New Yorkers who support the reproductive health provision of the Women’s Equality Agenda.
