Our Political Action

Our nation is 

50

years away from gender

equality in politics

Just 

20%

of sexual violence complaints result in a formal inquiry

in New York

1st

The Bipartisan Feminist Project is developing the

Youth Gender Commission in the nation so that these barriers can be rectified by young women with a vested interest in the future

Petition to Amend the Enough is Enough Act

The Enough is Enough Act is a New York State law aiming to set standards for appropriate responses to sexual assault, but which has failed to set and enforce adjudication standards that consistently deliver survivors justice. Our Political Action Committee is working with New York legislators to amend this Act, and your support can play a vital role in ensuring these changes are enacted in the next legislative cycle.

Our Legislative Proposals

The Bipartisan Feminist Project Political Action Committee is writing legislation with New York State Senators and Assemblymembers to improve sexual assault legislation and launch the world’s first Youth Gender Commission. Check out some of our most recent proposals below.
