Stop Violence Against Women

Welcome to Care2.com's Race to Stop Violence Against Women, where every click generates a donation to Amnesty International's programs to stop violence against women and girls worldwide.

Every time you click, you generate letters protesting violent practices against women and girls, or letters of support helping women on the frontlines cope in the face of injustice and threats to their lives.

Amnesty International's End Violence Against Women program is to protect millions of women worldwide from crimes like these:

- In the US, a woman is raped every 6 minutes; a woman is battered every 15 seconds.

- In North Africa, 6,000 women are genitally mutilated each day.

- This year, more than 15,000 women will be sold into sexual slavery in China.

- 200 women in Bangladesh will be horribly disfigured when their spurned husbands or suitors burn them with acid.

- More than 7,000 women in India will be murdered by their families and in-laws in disputes over dowries.

Your clicks make a difference! Thank you for helping today.

** Violence against women is rooted in a global culture of discrimination which denies women equal rights with men and which legitimizes the appropriation of women's bodies for individual gratification or political ends. Every year, violence in the home and the community devastates the lives of millions of women. Your daily clicks can help us turn the tide. **

Just click: http://stopviolence.care2.com/i?p=215848517

You can only click once per day so be sure to tell all your friends!

Thanks! Care2.com and Amnesty International

Amnesty International USA is proud to announce its support of "Water," the profoundly moving and compellingly vibrant story of India’s "widow houses," where women of all ages are taken to live (even today) apart from society following the deaths of their husbands.

Sprinkled with humor, rife with universal emotions and alive with visual excitement, the story of WATER follows three widows who dared to stand up for themselves in the liberating time of Mahatma Gandhi.

Amnesty commends the filmmaker, Deepa Mehta for her courage to create such a provocative film that addresses human rights abuses in India. We encourage you to go out and see "Water" which opens in select cities on April 28th.

To take action to protect Indian women and girls from violence and to view the trailer, log onto http://www.amnestyusa.org/water.
