“Ten million women in New York State went to sleep last night without critical safeguards against harassment, violence and discrimination. They woke up this morning protected by a host of provisions sponsored by Assembly Republicans enshrined into law today.
“Our conference championed bills to protect our most vulnerable women from the evils of human trafficking. Our conference championed bills to ensure that visionaries in industry don’t run into a glass ceiling on their way to the boardroom. Most importantly, Assembly Republicans prioritized legislation to strengthen protections against domestic violence and sexual harassment.
“Our work is not done. Our conference will continue to work tirelessly to make our state safer and more inclusive. This session, we’re focused on creating dynamic opportunities for all New Yorkers striving to secure their dreams and provide for their families.”
