NEW YORK: In the wake of the ghastly attacks on at least 24 women in Central Park this Sunday, Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney (Manhattan, Queens) and leading women's rights leaders condemned hate crimes today, and urged passage of three Federal bills that would establish a more comprehensive program to fight hate crimes and gender-related violence.
