U.S. Department of State’s “DipNote”: Being a Woman Should Not Have To Be a Courageous Act
Ambassador Catherine Russell, the U.S. ambassador-at-large for global women’s issues, writes, “This week we commemorate the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, which kicks off the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-based Violence. … I’m thankful for all the women and men, girls and boys, governments and international organizations, and civil society and private sector organizations joining in to end gender-based violence once and for all. I’m also especially pleased that so many governments — including the United States — are working to ensure that ending GBV is part of the next generation of international development goals” (11/25).
