|Description||The Women’s Equality Party (WEP) is an answer to the assaults on the basic rights of women and our lack of progress here in New York towards passing the full 10-point Women’s Equality Act. |
Women have come too far to accept anything less than full and absolute equality. We will not tolerate elected officials who block our basic rights and we will not allow our votes to be taken for granted. It is time for women and our allies to stand up and make sure our voices are heard. That’s why we are organizing our own movement, led by our own political party, the Women’s Equality Party.
The WEP builds on New York’s legacy of leadership within the Women’s Rights Movement, but these issues are far from history. Susan B. Anthony’s belief that women “have greater cause for discontent, rebellion and revolution” than men still echoes to this day.
It’s unacceptable that in 2015 this debate over women’s equality still exists. Help us end it.
