January 29, 2013 —  The New York Civil Liberties Union today applauded Governor Cuomo for bringing together more than 250 organizations in support of the Women’s Equality Agenda. The governor’s office today launched a website dedicated to the development of this groundbreaking legislative package and uniting advocates across the state in making women’s equality a priority this year. The following can be attributed to NYCLU Executive Director Donna Lieberman:

“The NYCLU is proud to join the growing list of diverse organizations that support Governor Cuomo's Women's Equality Agenda. Together we look forward to passing this groundbreaking 10-point legislative agenda that will help break down the barriers currently impeding women's equality in New York State. The governor's commitment to pay equity, extending protections against sexual harassment to all of New York's workers, and protecting a woman’s right to make her own private health care decisions will undoubtedly help level the playing field and ensure that all New York's mothers, daughters, sisters and wives can fully and equally participate in society.”
