BREAKING NEWS: At a time when the world’s attention is turned on the successes – and challenges – of advancing the human rights of women and girls across the globe, Amnesty is pleased to announce that today the Senate re-introduced a bipartisan International Violence Against Women Act (IVAWA). The abduction of hundreds of schoolgirls in Nigeria is yet another deeply disturbing example of the ways in which violence against girls and women affects every aspect of their lives. IVAWA represents a huge step forward in the U.S government's commitment to ending this globalscourge so that every woman and girl can live a life free from violence and access all of her human rights, including the right to education. Thanks to @Senator Barbara Boxer, @Senator Susan Collins, @Senator Mark Kirk, @Senator Menendez, and @Senator Jeanne Shaheen.
