Women in the United States have to think about women in the rest of the world where unacceptable conditions exists for hundreds of thousands of women.

American women must not forget those not as fortunate to have laws and a system of government that allow women to have a voice.
Hillary Rodham Clinton Empowers Women and Girls Worldwide
Hillary Rodham Clinton speaks at the International Conference on Population and Development
Read more about how women around the world are coming together to ensure that women and girls everywhere are empowered.
Hillary Rodham Clinton our Secretary of State spoke at the 15th anniversary of the International conference on population and development In Cairo. She represented millions of women around the world who are seeking the empowerment of girls and women in every country. The follow is from her speech given in Cairo on January 8, 2010.
Women and girls bear the burdens of regional and global crises, whether it's an economic downturn or climate change or political instability. They still are the majority of the world's poor, unschooled, unhealthy and underfed. Women are rarely the cause of violent consequences but they are the ones who bear the consequences of such conflicts.
With the decline of the worlds resources attention must be given to try to decline the world's population which would take the burden off the world's dwindling resources. Hillary acknowledged all the thousands of people who came together to declare with one voice that reproductive health care is critical to the health of women everywhere, which is essential to the prosperity and opportunity of all, to the stability of families and communities.
There is a direct connection between a woman's ability to plan her family, space her pregnancies, and give birth safely, and her ability to get an education, work outside the home, support her family and participate fully in the life of her community.
Women and girls worldwide are subject to abuses which in some cultures are tolerated. Small girls are turning to prostitution to support themselves,there is slave trade of young girls and some cultures still practice clortis mutilation. Having access to contraceptives is also a dire need with the HIV/AIDS which is now morphing into a women's disease and increasingly younger and younger women in many, many poor countries are infected.
Women becoming empowered worldwide is a strong movement. Some may believe that the feminist movement during the sixties and seventies did enough, but now is the time to get equal rights and access to health care and contraceptives worldwide to empower women to have more choices in their lives.
It has been proven that giving women and girls more education and ability to work and have influence in government and their communities also raises their community and country.
In societies where women's rights and roles are denied, girls are forbidden from attending school or they pay a very heavy price to try to do so. Few have the right to decide whether or when to get married, or become mothers. Poverty, political oppression and even violent extremism often follow.
Bullies Target Gays and Lesbians/Rutgers University Bullied Student Commits Suicide
There has been a rash of suicides by young teens and university students after they were harassed and bullied during school and on the Internet. It is a trend of mean spirited hate speech bigots that continue to harass and threaten students. Some of the suicides were young children in grade school.
Jane Valez Mitchell is claiming downright war on bullies and people who enjoy taunting other people just for fun and she is calling for people to stand up against bullies. Why these mean spirited people get enjoyment out of harassing and down right humiliating other people is beyond belief.
People everywhere are giving the stories of those being bullied who get to their wits end and choose to die rather than go to school one more day. This sad, sick trend must be stopped. It comes at a time where gays and lesbians are finally being more accepted and the government is standing behind their plea to do away with the military "Don't Ask Don't Tell" policy.
Why people continue to live in the past and try to not accept other people's way of life. Why can't we treat everyone as we would like to be treated. Perhaps people need to realize that God accepts all of us and we are in this world to love each other. Even Lady ga ga who is a big supporter of gays and lesbians refers to herself as "Born this way" and is trying to give attention to the hate speech that is being directed to anyone who is different.
The student at Rutgers University who jumped to his death off an area bridge had been harassed by his roommate and his female friend who video taped the student during what he thought was a private moment and downloaded it to YouTube. He was so upset that he ended his life. The two students will be charged with malicious intent or even manslaughter for their part in the attempt to humliate him. Were they so bored that they thought this would be a good way to spend their time.
The world is becoming a cruel and mean place and we all need to look at how we treat other people and how we would like to be treated in return. This bully issue is coming up time and again in as early as grade school. When will this all end?
Support Legislation called the International Violence Against Women Act
Help Combat Violence Against Women And Girls
Targeting: The U.S. Senate and The U.S. House of Representatives Sponsored by:
The International Violence Against Women Act (I-VAWA) is the first comprehensive piece of legislation in the United States aimed at ending violence against women and girls around the world.
It would improve our government's response when women are victims of sex trafficking and rape during war and would provide aid to women's groups on the ground working to help survivors of domestic and sexual violence. It would focus resources on prevention and ensure that dollars are used in the most effective ways possible. In some countries, it truly could mean the difference between life and death for a woman or girl.
We are asking that Members of Congress cosponsor this important piece of legislation.
Combat Violence Against Women And Girls
I am writing to urge you to co-sponsor the International Violence Against Women Act. Approximately one out of every three women globally has been beaten, coerced into sex, or otherwise abused in her lifetime. Rates of domestic violence are reportedly as high as 70 percent in some countries. Violence committed predominantly against women takes many forms, including rape, female genital cutting, domestic violence, acid burning, dowry related deaths and other harmful practices. Violence against women is a global health crisis, human rights violation, and moral outrage that contributes to instability and insecurity throughout our world.
I am asking you, my Senator/Representative, to co-sponsor the International Violence Against Women Act (I-VAWA) and take action to end the abuse.
The International Violence Against Women Act (I-VAWA) supports innovative programs that have been shown to be effective in decreasing acts of violence. It works to help survivors of physical and sexual abuse, hold perpetrators accountable and put in place campaigns that help prevent violence in the first place. Many of these programs help women and girls do things we so often take for granted: go to school, earn an income or get food for their families without fear of being raped or beaten. The I-VAWA will increase the efficiency and effectiveness of existing U.S. foreign policy to end violence against women and enhance our ability to stop the suffering.
In a world where tensions and violence within communities can jeopardize national and international security, it is critical that the United States take action to end atrocities committed against women and girls in their homes and in their communities, during times of peace and times of conflict.
The International Violence Against Women Act provides the United States with an opportunity to effectively address this problem and stop the violence around the world. Please make a difference in the lives of millions of women and girls and co-sponsor this important bill.
Hillary Clinton speech at International Conference on Population and Development/empowering women a girls worldwide
Hilllary ends her speech by saying"I just want to urge that we do not grow weary. I don't know about you, but sometimes it can seems a little bit hard to take. It is also self-evident; it seems so obvious to the rest of us that this needs to be done, and we keep encountering obstacles of every shape and size. But please, stay with us and let's try to create institutional and structural change that does not get wiped away when the political winds blow.
Let's try to create markets for women's goods and ways of funding them and educational and instructional programs along with our commitment to serve that will give women everywhere a chance to take their own lives and their own futures into their own hands."
