Thank President Obama for Making Gender Equality a Priority at USAID

We just took a big step forward in our efforts to reduce violence against women around the world: the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) has established a new Office of Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment, to be led by Carla Koppell.

This unprecedented appointment will ensure that women’s issues remain at the forefront of U.S. foreign policy and programs – an important victory for women’s and human’s rights activists – and an important step toward implementing the International Violence Against Women Act (I-VAWA). Futures Without Violence led a coalition of 150 organizations, including Women Thrive Worldwide and Amnesty International USA in advocating for a greater commitment by the U.S. to gender equality and reducing gender-based violence.

Our letter of thanks to the Obama Administration follows. We welcome you to join us in expressing gratitude for bringing us one step closer to our goal of ending violence against women and girls around the world.
