Ensuring Equal Rights for Women

Governor Cuomo launched the Women's Justice Agenda: The Time is Now campaign to urge the Legislature to pass the Equal Rights Amendment, eliminate the statute of limitations for rape in the second and third degrees, further strengthen New York’s pay equity law and pass further protections against sexual harassment in the workplace.

These initiatives, part of the 2019 Women’s Justice Agenda, were proposed in the Governor’s FY 2020 Executive Budget but were not adopted by the legislature, leaving them to be considered outside of the budget during the remainder of the legislative session, which ends June 19.
