Chautauqua Women's Club Contemporary Issues Forum: Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul on the centennial of the 19th amendment and women receiving the right to vote.
Hochul began her career in public service on her local town board, before serving as Erie County Clerk and then as a member of Congress for New York’s 26th Congressional District. Since 2015, she has served as the highest-ranking female elected official in New York.
As Lieutenant Governor of the state of New York, she championed the “Enough is Enough” law to prevent sexual assault on college campuses, spearheaded the state's Paid Family Leave program, and is continuing to work to eliminate the gender wage gap, expand access to affordable child care, and combat sexual harassment and discrimination in the workplace and beyond.
About Chautauqua Institution: Chautauqua Institution is a community on the shores of Chautauqua Lake in southwestern New York state that comes alive each summer with a unique mix of fine and performing arts, lectures, interfaith worship and programs, and recreational activities. As a community, we celebrate, encourage and study the arts and treat them as integral to all of learning, and we convene the critical conversations of the day to advance understanding through civil dialogue. CHQ Assembly is the online expression of Chautauqua Institution's mission.
