"Too Many Barriers Holding Women Back"

More than 50 local groups and businesses have come together to launch a new women's group, formed on the heels of Governor Cuomo's 10 point Women's Equality Act.

The New York Women's Equality Coalition was officially unveiled Thursday at the YWCA in Rochester.

"There are too many barriers holding NY women back. That's not what our mothers, daughters or sisters deserve. It's not what NY stands for. It's time to level the playing field," says members of the Coalition.
