Assemblywoman Woerner: New Laws Strengthen Women’s Rights

“The women’s equality legislation signed into law by Governor Cuomo will have a tremendous impact on the lives of women in the 113th Assembly District and New York State. These measures enact important safety measures for women and children who have been victimized by domestic violence and human trafficking, ensuring they receive the support, assistance and fair treatment they deserve.

“These new laws also ensure equal pay for equal work, protect the rights of women in the workplace, and support working families by preventing discrimination because of pregnancy and family status.

“I am proud to have helped pass this historic legislation during my first term in office, and I will continue to work to ensure that all of my constituents have the same freedoms and protections under the law.”
