Help Combat Violence Against Women And Girls

The International Violence Against Women Act (I-VAWA) is the first comprehensive piece of legislation in the United States aimed at ending violence against women and girls around the world.

It would improve our government's response when women are victims of sex trafficking and rape during war and would provide aid to women's groups on the ground working to help survivors of domestic and sexual violence. It would focus resources on prevention and ensure that dollars are used in the most effective ways possible. In some countries, it truly could mean the difference between life and death for a woman or girl.

We are asking that Members of Congress cosponsor this important piece of legislation.
