Pass the IVAWA

The International Violence Against Women Act (H.R. 4594, S. 2982) is a major step and unprecedented effort to end violence against women and girls across the globe. Now that we have major progressive women leaders like Hillary Clinton, Michele Bachelet and Melanne Verveer and many others in national and international positions to pressure for passage, the time is now! NOTHING, not nuclear threats, terrorism, global recession, global warming supercedes the importance of passing and enacting the IVAWA. Indeed, it is only by freeing women of the tyranny of physical and structural violence (poverty and disenfranchisement) that solutions to these global crises can possibly be realized. Please make passage of the Act a diplomatic and legislative priority!

IVAWA update

Dear Elaine,

Thank you for participating in the IVAWA letter writing campaign and for sharing your voice and your personal testimony with President Obama, Secretary Clinton, and members of the US Senate on the urgency of ending violence against women.

We sent copies of your letter in packages, along with your fellow PulseWire members', to these key decision makers, and I am excited to announce that on December 15, the International Violence Against Women Act was approved by the Foreign Relations Committee! Our voices were effective in supporting this bill!

Next step for the bill: Get passed by the Senate and House by the end of the year. I will keep you updated!

In friendship and solidarity,
Jade Frank
