The International Violence Against Women Act (IVAWA), is a bill now before Congress that, if passed, would, for the first time, comprehensively incorporate these solutions into all U.S. foreign assistance programs - solutions such as promoting women's economic opportunity, addressing violence against girls in school, and working to change public attitudes - bring about transformational change.

Roots of Peace
When Wangari Maathai became the first African woman to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2004, she also became the first Nobel laureate to make the link between keeping peace and conserving the environment. "Indeed," said Maathai, "the state of any country's environment is a reflection of the kind of governance in place, and without good governance there can be no peace."

From Women, Power and Politics:
