Press release:

Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R,C,I-Batavia) celebrates planks of the Women’s Equality Agenda that became law on Tuesday.

“I am honored to announce that historic measures to protect New York’s women from things like domestic violence and workplace discrimination have become law today,” Hawley said in a statement released yesterday. “My colleagues and I in the Assembly Minority Conference worked tirelessly to ensure that these individual bills came to the floor for a vote. While members of the Assembly Majority used this issue as campaign rhetoric, we continued our unwavering support and never lost sight of the importance to our state’s women. I am proud to be part of this memorable day and will continue to lead the fight on women’s rights.”

historic measures huh ? Steve, are you telling us that there wasn't any laws against workplace discrimination? are you telling us there wasn't any laws against domestic violence? if that is true you're doing a great job.
now let me clue you in, domestic violence and workplace discrimination is committed against men too.... get your self and your colleagues together and pass some historic legislation to protect men from these things too .. after all you don't want to discriminate do you ?
