Cuomo hitting the road to push women's rights plan

SENECA FALLS, N.Y. (AP) - Gov. Andrew Cuomo will be talking about his newly released women's rights proposal at two upstate New York locations that played key roles in the development of women's rights and higher education for women.

The governor plans to discuss his women's equality bill Wednesday afternoon at the Women's Rights National Historical Park in Seneca Falls in the Finger Lakes region. Afterward he'll head to the Hudson Valley, where he'll speak at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie.

On Tuesday, Cuomo unveiled his proposal calling for women's rights protections. As he has done with many of his initiatives, the governor is hitting the road to discuss his plan.

Seneca Falls was the site of the First Women's Rights Convention in 1848. Vassar was a women-only college for more than a century.
