Recent Release: HUMAN RIGHTS for the HUMAN RACE DAY!
Dear President Obama,
One in three women worldwide will be beaten, coerced into sex, or otherwise abused in their lives. They need important leaders like you to take action on their behalf. No one ever deserves to be beaten, raped, mutilated, or sold into sexual slavery. As a member of Amnesty International, I support laws such as the Tribal Law and Order Act, reintroduction & passage of legislation such as the International Violence Against Women Act, and ratification of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women, which will help stop this cycle of violence.
The time to act is now. I implore you to use your position to take a stand on this issue and end human rights abuse against women.
