Violence Against Women: Time to ACT
Rape. Domestic violence. Acid burnings. Dowry deaths. Honor killings.
Violence affects women in every corner of the globe. The PulseWire community has already spoken out about the urgent need to end violence against women worldwide. Now it is time to take the message to the halls of power.
The International Violence Against Women Act (I-VAWA)—The first comprehensive legislation to prioritize the issue of violence against women within US foreign policy—needs your support to pass through US Congress. This is a historic opportunity to take action and assert a global commitment to fight violence against women.
World Pulse calls on our global network of leaders and activists to write letters in support of the legislation and help push I-VAWA through. World Pulse will package your letters and deliver them directly to President Barack Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and key US senators.
