Women's Equality Act Petition

WEA_Laura.jpgOn January 27th, 2014 the New York State Assembly once again passed the Women's Equality Act - the 10-point plan to help eradicate gender inequality and discrimination in our state. And again, the New York State Senate looks like they're going to refuse to allow this essential bill come to a vote.

The Women's Equality Act secures equal pay for equal work, provides fair access to housing for women and families that rely on subsidized housing, ends housing discrimination for victims of domestic violence, safeguards reproductive rights, ends employment and pregnancy discrimination, and so much more!

We won't allow the Republicans and Independent Democratic Caucus to continue playing politics with the lives of women in our state. Metro Justice is standing up and continuing to demand immediate passage of this act.

Sign our petition and show your support for the Women's Equality Act.

I sign this petition to call on the New York State Senate to bring to a vote and approve the Women's Equality Act as passed by the Assembly on January 27th, 2014. New York State laws need an upgrade and New York needs genuine Women's Equality now!
