Pass the International Violence Against Women Act (IVAWA)
American Jewish World Service stands with women and girls worldwide in calling for the U.S. Congress to pass the International Violence Against Women Act (IVAWA), a law that would ensure that the U.S. government puts the full weight of its foreign aid and international diplomacy behind global efforts to end violence against women and girls.* IVAWA supports women and girls working to combat violence in their communities with innovative, cost-effective programs that we know decrease acts of violence. * IVAWA helps stop violence so that women and girls can do things we so often take for granted: go to school, earn an income to sustain their families, collect food or water without fear of rape or harassment, and bring perpetrators of abuse to justice. * IVAWA ensures that women and girls remain a top priority of U.S. foreign policy.As global citizens who are committed to justice, we must not stand idly by when millions of women need us to act. It is our responsibility to speak out about the violence and abuse experienced by hundreds of millions of women and girls worldwide.
