Gov. Andrew Cuomo once again called for the full passage of the Equal Rights Amendment as part of a recognition of International Women’s Day.

The amendment gained first passage in the state Assembly last month.

The ERA is meant to guarantee equal rights in the state constitution on the basis of sex.

The state version is modeled after the federal Equal Rights Amendment which is yet to be ratified after it was first passed by Congress in 1972.

“As the Trump Administration wages a war on women, it is more important than ever before that New York fight back to protect our progress and enshrine gender equality in our state constitution,” Cuomo said.

“It is unacceptable that more than 100 years after women won the right to vote in New York State, our Constitution still does not ban discrimination based on sex or afford women equal protections under the law. That needs to end this year. We must pass the ERA this legislative session to ensure New York continues to serve as the beacon of progress for the nation.”
