On October 21, 2015 NYS Governor Andrew Cuomo signed a selection of the women’s equality bills that were passed during the 2015 legislative season. This is a major victory for women in New York! The YWCA of Brooklyn applauds Governor Cuomo and we were beyond pleased to be among those present at the signing of these key bills. This will help to break down barriers that perpetuate discrimination and inequality against women in the workplace, and in society at large. These new laws address pregnancy discrimination, sexual harassment, domestic violence, trafficking, housing fairness and more. #NYSWomen
