Andrew Cuomo’s righthand girl, an allegedly “ruthless, heartless” enforcer for the governor amidst his sexual harassment scandal, heads a state panel that’s alleged to concentrate on workforce fairness and stopping violence in opposition to ladies.
Melissa DeRosa, who is secretary to the governor, can also be the chair of the state Fee on Girls and Ladies.
Cuomo fashioned the group in 2017, however its work previously yr is unclear. It final issued a press launch in June 2020, with an announcement that the state would enable midwife-led birthing facilities for the primary time.
The fee has a steering committee of highly effective ladies from throughout the state, however the group has not met in 18 months, one member stated.
