Today is the 20th anniversary of V-Day, a global movement to stop violence against women and girls. On this day, GJC is focused on the women and girls raped in war who are denied lifesaving medical care.
US restrictions on foreign aid regularly deny abortion services to women and girls raped in war. The Trump administration made these restrictions exponentially worse by reinstating and expanding the Global Gag Rule.
The Gag Rule is not only damaging to women and girls who are victims of violence, it also violates international law. GJC's team of legal experts fight every day to combat these restrictions, make them understandable and push for proactive laws that protect the rights of women and girls around the world.
