  •  Could you say more about the bill? (2+ / 0-)

    How, specifically, does it help protect women against violence? Does it make it easier for women fearing honor killings or female genital cutting to obtain asylum? How does it...

    make ending violence against women a diplomatic priority for the first time in U.S. history. It would require the U.S. government to respond to critical outbreaks of gender-based violence in armed conflict - such as the mass rapes now occuring in the Democratic Republic of Congo - in a timely manner.


    Of course these atrocities demand a powerful, immediate response, but what does the bill say, specifically, about how the US gov't should respond to "critical outbreaks of gender-based violence in armed conflict"? Does it say much about how these are defined?

    ORGANIZE early, ORGANIZE often.
