Part 1. The International Violence Against Women Act is a landmark piece of legislation. It is a bill that ties American foreign policy directly to the treatment of women. Supporters of what is known as IVAWA recently held a powerful telephone press conference and this week on 51% we are going to feature those speakers. First is Humaira Shahid, a Pakistani journalist and legislator who is lobbying Congress to make IVAWA law. Also participating in the call was Ritu Sharma, the head of Women Thrive Worldwide, a women's political advocacy organization. The International Violence Against Women Act languished in Washington but has finally become law in 2010. One of the co-sponsors is Congressman Bill Delahunt of Massachusetts. He is not planning to run for office next year and he wants IVAWA to be the legacy of his ten plus years in the House. Also on the recent press call was Democrat Jan Schakowsky of Illinois who is running of her eighth term this year. The final speaker is actor and women's rights activists, Ashley Judd
