Help reach the goal of 3,000 signatures to urge Congress to Stop Violence Against Women! International Rescue Committee started this petition in hopes of reaching a shared goal of ending gender-based violence.
1 in 3 women will be raped or abused in her lifetime. In the midst of war and disaster, she is also fighting against hunger, inequality, poverty and disease. But with protection, education, and greater opportunity, we can make women safe and able to support their families. You have the power to make it a fair fight.
The Desired Outcome of the Petition:
Urge leaders of Congress to support the International Violence Against Women Act. The United States must lead the way to ensure a safer, more secure future for women and girls. This legislation is a critical step toward helping survivors of sexual violence, protecting those still at risk and preventing future violence.
