Finally, women’s issues are taking center stage in the election debate across the country, and especially here in New York. While the NYS Women’s Equality Act would significantly expand women’s rights, achieving economic equality is the next challenge – and opportunity – ahead.

Now is the time to ask! That’s why the NYS PowHER Network created the #POWHERLIST Campaign to spotlight the need for increased economic opportunity and fairness, and to focus on solutions.

Our #POWHERLIST proposes a dozen key issues that must be addressed to create economic equality. We know there are much more and are asking YOU, New York leaders and experts: “What’s on Your POWHERList? And, every Wednesday until Election Day we will talk about the answers!
