From Amnesty International
Ground-breaking legislation that could help end violence against women around the world is in Senator Kerry's hands.
Tell him to reintroduce the International Violence Against Women Act by Mother's Day.
The International Violence Against Women Act (IVAWA) is an unprecedented effort by the United States to address violence against women globally. One out of every three women worldwide will be physically or sexually abused during her lifetime. Violence against women and girls is a violation of human rights. Violence and abuse devastates the lives of millions of women, knows no national or cultural barriers, and most importantly, it must be stopped.
Send a message to Kerry and Lugar that you want to put an end to this epidemic of violence against women. After you take action you will be able to send a Mother's Day card to your friends and family encouraging them to take action as well.
Together we can defend the rights of mothers and daughters everywhere.
Thanks for your support,
Director, Stop Violence Against Women Campaign
