When a woman has equal economic rights and the power to make decisions, she can lift herself, her family and her community out of poverty and improve lives for the better.
Globally, 1.2 billion people live in absolute poverty — most of them women and girls — but America has a chance to support women worldwide today. Investing in women's economic empowerment is crucial to ending global poverty, making America and our allies stronger and lifting barriers so women can reach their full potential.
Thanks to CARE advocates, key legislation for women's economic empowerment successfully passed the House of Representatives. Now, our work continues. Send a message to your U.S. Senators today and urge them to cosponsor and support passage of the bipartisan Women’s Entrepreneurship and Empowerment Act of 2018 and prioritize women’s economic empowerment.
Dear [Decision Maker],
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
