The League of Women Voters of the Hamptons, Shelter Island, and North Fork organized a program on Saturday, March 9, at LTV Studios in Wainscott to celebrate Women’s History Month.

The event highlighted a new equal rights amendment to the New York State Constitution. While the New York State legislature has already passed the amendment, it must be approved by voters via a November ballot measure in order to become law.

The purpose of the NYS Equal Rights Protection Amendment to the NYS Constitution is to protect against discrimination based on a person’s race, ethnicity, national origin, age, disability, creed, religion, or sex, including sexual orientation, pregnancy, and reproductive health care.

The event featured a panel discussion and Q&A with Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney (D, NY), The Hon. Margie Bright Matthews, and Laura Harding, Esq., president of ERASE Racism on Long Island. The panel was moderated by Andrea Gabor, LWV Board member and Bloomberg Professor of Business Journalism at Baruch College/CUNY.
