Today is International Women's Day - a day to celebrate the achievements of women around the world in struggling for equality. To continue the amazing progress women have made in this country, having VAWA pass the Senate is vital. You can make a difference today! We now have 58 sponsors for S. 1925, the "real" VAWA introduced by Senators Leahy (D-VT) and Crapo (R-ID)!!
We need two more sponsors and several more supporters. Listed above is the contact information for the remaining 3 women Senators who have yet to sponsor the bipartisan VAWA. All are former sponsors or have expressed interest or support for VAWA. Please call and ask them to sponsor S. 1925; or, if they cannot do that, ask them to pledge their support for a clean bill when VAWA comes to the Senate floor in the weeks ahead.
We must do this to protect the rights of women and girls everywhere! And what a better day than today for our advocacy. Please help by urging the women senators to support VAWA and take action on behalf of women and girls for International Women's Day!
Action: Call and ask the remaining women senators to pledge their support for VAWA:
"In honor of International Women's Day, please add your support to S. 1925, the VAWA bill. We need your sponsorship and support in championing the rights of the nation's women and girls through this critical legislation. VAWA stands for the progress of women's equality that International Women's Day recognizes."
