Tell Russia to Stand Against Rape
There is a powerful new international treaty in the works asking countries to actively stand against the horrific trafficking trade - the rape trade - of women, children, and men. Avaaz.org has taken this opportunity to launch a massive petition to convince Prime Minister Putin, who likes to style himself as a macho protector of his nation, and get him to protect his nation's women as well. This is especially important, given Russian women are amongst the most trafficked in the world, along with other former Soviet Union nations.
All you need to do is sign the petition and spread the word. Let's help stop this horrific crime.
