Highlighting the origins of the Women’s Rights Movement in New York, Governor Hochul emphasized the state’s historic role in advocating for women’s equality. She acknowledged the efforts of trailblazing women who have laid the foundation for future generations. The exhibition features influential figures such as civil liberties lawyer Bella Abzug, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and journalist Gloria Steinem, among others, who have worked tirelessly for women’s equality.

The exhibit, which is also accessible online, aims to inspire continued advocacy for equity, diversity, and inclusion. Jeanette Moy, New York State Office of General Services Commissioner, remarked on the progress women have made and the ongoing efforts needed to achieve full equity. Visitors can explore the contributions of these remarkable women on weekdays from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. until the end of March. For more details, the public is encouraged to visit the official website.
