Help End Violence Against Women and Girls!

    1. Petition by

      Women Thrive Worldwide

Approximately one out of every three women globally has been beaten, coerced into sex or otherwise abused in her lifetime but imagine a world without violence against women.  Finally, after decades of silence and inaction, there is one bill that will bolster US efforts to end violence against women across the globe: 

The International Violence Against Women Act (IVAWA)

Violence against women is a major cause of poverty and a huge barrier to economic opportunity. In addition to being an extreme human rights violation, it keeps women from getting an education, working, and earning the income they need to lift their families out of poverty.

The International Violence Against Women Act (IVAWA), if passed, would consistently incorporate solutions for reducing violence against women into U.S. foreign assistance programs.

Contact your member of Congress and ask them to co-sponsor the International Violence Against Women Act.

      We need help in Juarez Mexico where our young women are being tortured and murdered at least since 1993, and no-one has been charged! Almost 5000 young ladies murdered or missing.
