A global mission to fight sexual violence against women
from The New York Times
Just as the pressing call for an end to violence against women resounds around the world, it is also making itself heard in Washington. The U.S. Congress passed the expanded Violence Against Women Act it had held up for a year and a half, and, separately, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., went to war against sexual assault in the U.S. military, holding the first Senate hearings on this staggering problem in nearly 10 years. Outside Capitol Hill, in the beehive of women-centered nonprofits like Vital Voices Global Partnership, the drive to end violence against women has been moving at varying speeds and with varying degrees of success.
