one out of every three women globally will be beaten, coerced into sex, or
otherwise abused in her lifetime—with rates reaching 70 percent in some
against women and girls is a human rights violation, public health epidemic, and barrier to solving global challenges such as extreme poverty,
HIV/AIDS and conflict.
Violence Against Women Act would make the prevention of global gender-based
violence a United State foreign policy priority. The bill would, for the first
time, codify a comprehensive approach to fight violence against women and girls
across the globe.
2015 the International Violence Against Women Act was reintroduced in the U.S.
Senate and House with the strongest bipartisan support to date. But our job isn’t
over yet. We have to keep urging Members of Congress to pass this critical
piece of legislation to prevent violence against women and across the globe.
Ask your Members of Congress to pass the International Violence Against Women Act today!
Please Support the International Violence Against Women Act!
