Signed. ty David

- " CARE is a leading humanitarian organization fighting global poverty. We place special focus on working alongside poor women because, equipped with the proper resources, women have the power to help whole families and entire communities escape poverty.

One in three women worldwide has been raped, abused, forced into prostitution, or suffered some other form of violence. This is happening every day, in every country around the world—but those who commit these acts all too frequently walk away without consequences. We need to do something to stop this atrocity.

We need 6,000 people to speak out and tell Rep. Ed Royce, chair of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, to support the International Violence Against Women Act as it makes its way through the committee.

I would not change a word of that title. "Make Violence Against Women an International Priority"
Not anti - violence not unless you change the entire sentence. Yes, I am the grammar police.

"Make Violence Against Women An International Priority"... Let's be violent to women.
