Are the laws that protect women in New York just a little too vintage? 

We still don't have a Women's Equality Agenda and without it, the attacks on women's reproductive health in Congress may have dire consequences in New York. The Women's Equality Agenda will ensure that no matter what happens in Congress, women in New York will still have access to comprehensive reproductive health care


Help us make sure that everyone knows why the Women's Equality Agenda is so important. Watch and share this great video about New York law: Illegal or Just Sleazy?


Then, take action! Join the NY Women's Equality Coalition's Online Day of Action on Thursday, November 21. Tweet @NY4Women and like NY Women's Equality on Facebook to join the conversation.
