Sonke Gender Justice, the Family Violence Prevention Fund and the International Center for Research on Women will be making a presentation to the US Senate Staff to support the passage of the proposed Act, which would provide international development assistance focusing specifically on GBV prevention efforts, and mentions the need to engage men.
