Tell David Cameron to help end violence against women and girls

One in three women will experience some form of violence in her lifetime. Every year 60 million girls are sexually assaulted at, or on their way to, school.  But around the world, millions of women are working tirelessly ? and fearlessly ? to tackle these crimes, make sure that violence doesn't rob women and girls of a decent education, and become a positive force for change.

Najiba (pictured) became a paralegal advisor with ActionAid because she wanted to do something about the routine and shocking violence faced by women around her. She has helped to resolve more than 100 cases of violence against women in Afghanistan, often putting her own safety at risk.

This September, for the first time in history, the UN will agree on a global target to tackle violence against women and girls, we need to push them to make sure they actually implement it. This is our chance to stand with women like Najiba and help amplify the important work they have already begun.

We are calling for the UK government to champion the new target on violence against women and girls as a global priority, with strong leadership, the participation of women's organisations, and proper funding to make an end to violence a reality.

We can win this ? but we need your help. Please sign now to call on the Prime Minister to stand with fearless women in this endeavor. We will deliver all signatures to David Cameron before the UN General Assembly in September to make sure your voice is heard.
