One in three women worldwide will experience a form of physical or sexual violence at some point in her lifetime. March 8 is International Women's Day. Take action and urge Congress to support the International Violence Against Women Act (H.R. 3571)!
Passing the International Violence Against Women Act (IVAWA) would be a strong statement that ending violence against women and girls is a top American priority. IVAWA would help address the issue of violence against women by combining existing U.S. foreign aid with support for anti-violence programs and survivor resources. IVAWA would also give the Office of Global Women’s Issues at the State Department the authority to create and direct the implementation of a global strategy to address violence against women.
Hadassah is a longtime supporter of the Violence Against Women Act reauthorization and proudly advocated for its reauthorization earlier this year. The Violence Against Women Act provides assistance to victims of domestic and dating violence, sexual assault and stalking—both women and men—by facilitating coordinated community responses to these crimes, funding specialized training for various levels of law enforcement, and supporting community-based organizations that offer programs for victims.
In honor of International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, Hadassah Medical Organization in Israel marks the struggle against domestic violence by encouraging patients to contact hospital nurses and hotlines. Through a joint project of the maternity ward and the Department of Social Work, Hadassah supports patients who are survivors and raises awareness about the issue of violence against women.
