New Yorkers from every corner of the state are headed to the Capitol in Albany to join thousands for a rally and legislative meetings in support of the Women’s Equality Agenda. The Agenda is Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s groundbreaking 10-point plan aimed at improving the lives of New York’s 10 million women by removing significant barriers to women’s full and equal participation in society. The #NY4Women Rally and Lobby Day is a grassroots effort to organizing labor groups, women’s advocacy organizations, religious groups, business leaders, health care associations and concerned New Yorkers who have dedicated themselves to making sure lawmakers pass the Women’s Equality Agenda. The goal of the rally is to improve the lives of women across the state and establish New York as a beacon for the nation in promoting equality for all people. Full article.

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 makes it illegal to discriminate against someone on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, or sex. Sexual discrimination involves treating someone (an applicant or employee) unfavorably because of that person’s sex. The law forbids such sexual discrimination when it comes to any aspect of employment, including hiring, firing, pay, job assignments, promotions, layoff, training, fringe benefits, and any other term or condition of employment.
