Pass the International Violence Against Women Act

An overwhelming one in three women will experience gender-based violence in their lifetime. Gender-based violence such as domestic violence and rape persists in communities throughout the world, and as the world's refugee population grows at an alarming rate, refugee women and girls are even more likely to experience physical and sexual violence.

Our leaders have the tool to end this crisis. The International Violence Against Women Act (IVAWA) would make the United States a stronger leader in fighting and preventing the abuse of women and girls around the world.

Add your voice now and call on Congress to support and pass IVAWA, and commit to leading the effort to stop gender-based violence.
