Updated: International Campaign Accomplishments
On August 10, 2012, the Obama Administration unveiled a United States Strategy to Prevent and Respond to Gender-based Violence Globally (Strategy), the first of its kind in U.S. history and a monumental victory for women and girls around the world.

The Strategy was an integral part of Futures Without Violence’s Five-Part Action Plan to End Violence Against Women and Girls Globally.
