Feminist Majority

Thank you, Senators!

We are so excited! Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) just held a breakthrough hearing with seven - count them - seven women senators on combating violence against women, featuring the need to ratify the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) and pass the International Violence Against Women Act (IVAWA). Chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee Bob Menendez (D-NJ) and Assistant Senate Majority Leader and Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL) also attended the hearing and strongly supported CEDAW and IVAWA.

Please join us in thanking the senators today by signing our card below. We must stop the scourge of global violence against women, and CEDAW and IVAWA are vitally needed tools in the fight.
