against women is a horrific and pervasive human rights crisis that demands our
response. Far too many women and girls around the world fall prey to
traffickers, are attacked as they attend school and endure violence in the home
or rape as a weapon of war. At least 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 countries.
Last introduced in the 111th Congress, the International Violence
Against Women Act, calls for a comprehensive U.S. response to end violence
against women and girls globally, by:
urge your Members of Congress to cosponsor re-introduce and pass I-VAWA today!
Dear [Decision Maker],
I am writing to urge you to re-introduce and pass the International Violence Against Women Act, last introduced in the 111th Congress.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
