Maloney buoyed by union support for Equal Rights Amendment

Carolyn Maloney thanked NYSUT delegates and leaders for featuring her on the 2024 NYSUT Women’s History Month poster. It pictures Maloney clad in a dress that she wore to the Met Gala in 2021, emblazoned with “Equal Rights for Women.”

Maloney thanked the statewide union for the honor and its support for passing resolutions on the Equal Rights Amendment, which would enshrine equal rights for women in the United States Constitution.

“Your resolution will give us the momentum to get it through the Congress this year,” said Maloney of two NYSUT RA resolutions calling for passage of the ERA. “If they can take away our rights with the Dobbs decision … they can take away any right!”
