Urge Congress to Pass Inl Stop Violence Against Women Act

Please join Women's Media Center in supporting the International Rescue Committee's (IRC) campaign to stop violence against women by following the links below to sign the petition urging Congress to pass the International Stop Violence Against Women Act without delay. This legislation is a necessary first step towards ending violence against women living in conflict zones around the world. We hope you'll take action today and help put a stop to the atrocities that are being committed against women and girls.

In the aftermath of the earthquake in Haiti, women and girls are vulnerable to exploitation and abuse as they struggle to survive and protect their families. Stand up for women in Haiti -- and other women around the world who face unspeakable violence. Watch our video and sign the IRC petition asking Congressional leaders to protect and empower women.

We must ensure a safer, more secure future for women and girls. The International Violence Against Women Act is a critical first step by helping survivors, protecting those still vulnerable and preventing further violence through international aid programs and foreign policy efforts.

Empower women by signing our petition to stop violence against women around the world. We have a responsibility to support those who are threatened, and abused.

Watch the video and sign the petition:
