New York, NY – The Global Network of Women’s Shelters today recognized Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of State Hilary Clinton for their longstanding commitment to ending violence against women.  The National Network to End Domestic Violence announced the U.S. awards in conjunction with a meeting of the United Nation’s Commission on the Status of Women, also known as Beijing +15.  (http://www.un.org/womenwatch/daw/beijing15/index.html)  

“Vice President Biden and Secretary Clinton are staunch allies in the movement to end violence against women and girls,” said Sue Else, president of the National Network to End Domestic Violence.  “We are delighted to recognize and thank them for their life-saving efforts.” 

Vice President Biden was the original author of the landmark Violence Against Women Act, celebrating its fifteenth anniversary this year.  Secretary Clinton has long been an international, outspoken advocate for women and children.  In 1995, she delivered a high-profile speech in Beijing and said, “Human rights are women’s rights, and women’s rights are human rights.” 

In addition to Vice President Biden and Secretary Clinton, the Global Network of Women’s Shelters honored Gabriele Heinisch-Hosek, Federal Minister for Women and Civil Service (Austria); the Honorable Helena Guergis, Minister of State for the Status of Women (Canada); Inger Stoejberg, Minister for Employment and Gender Equality (Denmark); and Lic. Maria del Rocio Garcia Gaytan, president of the National Institute of Women (INMujeres) (Mexico). 

The Global Network of Women’s Shelters is a worldwide coalition of organizations dedicated to ending violence against women and girls.
