Tabling in support of women’s rights

All week long, at lunch and dinner at Usdan, Amnesty International and Americans for Informed Democracy will be tabling in support of CEDAW (Treaty for the Rights of Women) and I-VAWA (International Violence Against Women Act). Says Antoinette Zosherafatain ’10:

I-VAWA was just introduced into the Senate on October 31. Write a letter to your senator telling them to co-sponsor it! CEDAW is a piece of UN legislation ratified by 170 countries. The U.S. is not one of them. Write a letter to your senator to ask them about this, too! Also, we’re having a sweet photo petition to send in to Congress.

Amnesty International tee shirts will be on sale for $10, and “sweet pins” can be had for “free,” with a letter or a donation.
