Make Preventing Violence Against Women an International Priority - Petition

I overview - petition

She was gang raped by a group of six men who dumped her bloodied, broken body by the side of the road in Delhi, India. The 23-year-old’s story was told and re-told in the headlines. Her subsequent death sparked an international outcry, and discussions about the epidemic of rape and violence in India and around the world.

One in three women worldwide have been raped, abused, forced into prostitution, or suffered some other form of violence. This is happening every day, in every country around the world – but those who commit these acts all too frequently walk away without consequences. We need to do something to stop this atrocity.

Right now, there’s a bill before Congress that would make ending violence against women and girls a top diplomatic priority: the International Violence Against Women Act (IVAWA). IVAWA won’t change what happened to women and girls who have already suffered at the hands of violence. But it would make a real difference in the lives of women and girls who have survived violence, as they work to heal, and would hold those who commit acts of violence accountable for their actions. And it would protect women and girls who are still free from suffering today.

Ask your Representative to cosponsor the International Violence Against Women Act — and stop the epidemic of violence.
