In her lifetime, approximately one in three women around the world will suffer violence simply because she is a woman. Sex trafficking, rape during times of war, and domestic violence are destructive forces not just for women, but for entire communities. This cannot continue.

Your legislators have the power to speak out against this systemic violence against women, and rally support for innovative programs that decrease acts of violence.

Please ask Congress to make women's safety an urgent priority. Their leadership could mean the difference between life and death for a woman or girl.
