Working Together in New Ways to End Violence against Women
Democrats Abroad Salutes International Women’s Day 2023
with Anne DePrince, Noted Author and Expert on Violence Against Women
On March 5, at 9 am Eastern Time, U.S. citizens from around the globe will be joined via Zoom by Anne DePrince, the author of Every 90 Seconds: Our Common Cause Ending Violence Against Women. The event precedes and celebrates International Women’s Day on the 8th.
This event will include remarks from the author who will also take questions from participants. In her book, DePrince provides perspective on the overwhelming scope of violence, its frequency, its pervasiveness and its many devastating forms. She also examines the impact it has on every aspect of society and the ways societal attitudes and conditions can exacerbate the crimes and the damage that results. In her comments to Democrats Abroad, DePrince will focus, in particular, on the needs for action and the ways each of us can contribute to making change.
From Awareness to Action follows a continuing series of conversations on related subjects sponsored by the Democrats Abroad Violence Against Women Action Team as part of an on-going research, education and action project.. These have ranged from Gender-based violence and the military justice system (with Nancy Parrish & Col. Don Christensen from Protect Our Defenders) , the correlations between the status and safety of women and the security of countries and the world (with Dr. Valerie Hudson, author of The First Political Order) and the challenges in finding support for U.S. victims of violence when they are abroad (with Paula Lucas from Pathways to Safety International).
