International Violence Against Women's Act (I-VAWA)

On February 4, 2010, The International Violence Against Women Act (I-VAWA) was introduced in the Senate (S 2982) and the House of Representatives (HR 4594)!

The International Violence Against Women Act (I-VAWA) is an unprecedented effort by the United States to address violence against women globally. It directs the U.S. government to create a comprehensive, 5-year strategy to reduce violence in 10-20 diverse countries identified as having severe levels of violence against women (Amnesty International, 2010).
