Testimony for U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee

Mr. Chairman. I would like to begin by thanking you and ranking member Senator Lugar for your initiative in bringing us together to address the issue of global violence against women, and for your continuing leadership on these issues.

For those of us who have spent decades working on issues of women's empowerment and protection in conflict situations, these are exciting times.
