About the Pledge
More than one-third of the world's women will experience domestic abuse, rape, or another form of gender-based violence at some point in their lives. Yet Congress has allowed the International Violence Against Women Act (H.R. 3571) to languish for years.
No one should have to live in fear of gender-based violence. And nowhere can we accept bride burnings, dowry deaths, so-called “honor” killings, rape, or other forms of violence against women.
Take the #No1Nowhere pledge, and Women Thrive will display your name at a Capitol Hill reception in Washington to build support for the International Violence Against Women Act.
