LETTER: Stirpe calls on state senate to vote on women’s equality now

— These are only some of the protections women would gain if the Women’s Equality Act becomes law. The 10 points of the act would accomplish the following:

  1. Achieve pay equity

  2. Stop sexual harassment in the workplace

  3. Fight against human trafficking

  4. Grant domestic violence victims better protections

  5. End housing discrimination for domestic violence victims

  6. Ensure women can make their own reproductive healthcare decisions

  7. Ban employment discrimination

  8. Stop pregnancy discrimination

  9. Help discrimination victims recover legal fees

  10. Prevent housing discrimination against those in need

It is now time for the state senate to act on the full 10 points. The assembly majority has supported full women’s equality by passing each and every one of the WEA’s 10 points. The state senate must do the same, not leaving any measure behind.
