Stop I-VAWA Stop Aggression (Part 1)

Posted on: December 26, 2010


Again the subject is the same, the so called “Violence Against Women” but this time its going International. This is an overview of International Violence against women Act which was under discussion and now got approved by the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Senate a couple of weeks ago. Its now waiting to be brought for the full Senate vote.

Under the facade of “Violence Against Women” USA is bringing up a notorious Act to control the internal affairs of those countries they choose. This Act when implemented will directly affect 20 countries in general and MEN and children (and women in the long run) of those countries in particular. This is an attempt to make people aware of what is going to come in the name of “protecting women” and a request to do what ever you can to stop this vicious trend. When implemented this will uproot all the traditions, religious values, institution of family itself and will get replaced with money oriented worker slaves for the corporates including porn industry!

Lets take a look at the package, i mean whats inside the package not the label, which is “Violence Against Women”. I’m not listing everything in the bill and make you bored but just mentioning those sections that needs to be addressed. You can read the full text of the bill here

As presented in the Senate
As presented in the House of Representatives

SEC. 2. FINDINGS.
(3) Women who have experienced violence are also at higher risk for contracting HIV,

I don’t know why they didn’t include gonorrhea, Hepatitis, tuberculosis, skin deceases and all other contagious deceases. WHY is it ONLY HIV!!!! Is this talking about sexual assault? Then the Act should cover homosexual contacts too, shouldn’t it?

Here is another finding which i totally failed to understand. It says Violence Against Women

7(D) is perpetuated by poverty, a lack of educational or employment opportunities for girls, parental concerns to ensure sexual relations within marriage, the dowry system, and the perceived lack of value of girls.

In other words people are getting Violent against poor uneducated jobless women. Is that correct? Is that how one should understand that? If that’s the case, then how about poor uneducated jobless MEN? Are they safe? Isn’t there a need to protect them?

Violence Against Women is perpetuated by parental concerns to ensure sexual relations within marriage!!! I’m speechless. If any of you has any wild idea about this please, please let me know.

Violence Against Women is perpetuated by dowry system.
I don’t think there is dowry system anywhere else than in India. India government is suggesting to make dowry system more transparent by registering dowry articles. Several rulings of Indian Supreme Court clearly says customary gifts are not dowry and wont come under the purview of Dowry Prohibition Act. Dowry is an extra benefit that only girls get apart from their statutory right to inheritance, But White House seems not happy with that.

Violence Against Women is perpetuated by the perceived lack of value of girls. It’s not clear that what is the definition of “Value” here, and from what perspective. If it is from monetary perspective, even educated women who has no job doesn’t have any value and so do MEN. If it is from a relationship perspective women can still undertake all the responsibilities of a family where as MEN completely fail to undertake any of his responsibilities of the family; apparently, he even fail to make a family. When i say responsibilities of a MAN, that is exactly in line with what courts around the globe has been enforcing, “Pay alimony, Pay Child support, no child custody and absolutely no conjugal rights“. If such perceptions are reasons for violence, why are MEN excluded to get protection under this proposed Act?

SEC. 3. STATEMENT OF POLICY.
(4) support and build capacity of indigenous nongovernmental organizations that are working to prevent and respond to violence against women and girls internationally, particularly woman’s nongovernmental organizations and groups involving male advocates;

In India, a non-governmental organization is something that anyone can launch. By definition it can be a Charitable Trust, Society or a Company registered under sec 25 of Companies Act. There are no rules or specific audits to enforce a particular mode of work or motive set by law for these organizations. What government look for is any tax manipulation and nature of business other than what is mentioned in the Articles of association. Under this circumstances it is a matter of high security concern to allow a foreign nation to directly involve and control local organizations and groups.

(8) enhance training by United States personnel of professional foreign military and police forces and judicial officials to include specific and thorough instruction on preventing and responding to violence against women and girls internationally;

(9) increase communication and cooperation with nongovernmental organizations with demonstrated experience in woman’s empowerment, combating violence against women and girls internationally, and engaging men and boys as partners, including consulting with such organizations during strategic planning exercises;

Does that sound like a military base with a label of Non Governmental Organization? I will talk more about this section later.

(11) include–
(A) prevention of child marriage as an important part of preventing violence against girls; and

As per Islamic laws any woman who attained puberty is legally eligible to marry. Reading that together with this section might make you think that this is for those nations who has Islamic laws. It sounds more like another card as “Weapons of mass destruction“.

(5) VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN AND GIRLS- The term `violence against women and girls’–

(A) means any act of violence against women or girls that results in, or is likely to result in, physical, sexual, or psychological harm or suffering to women or girls, including threats of such acts, coercion, or arbitrary deprivations of liberty, whether occurring in public or private life; and

(B) includes–
(i) physical, sexual, and psychological violence occurring in the family, including battering, sexual abuse of female children in the household, dowry-related violence, marital rape, female genital cutting and mutilation, forced child marriage, and other traditional practices harmful to women and girls, nonspousal violence, and violence related to exploitation;

(ii) physical, sexual, and psychological violence occurring within the general community, including rape, sexual abuse, sexual harassment and intimidation at work, in educational institutions and elsewhere, trafficking in women and girls, and forced prostitution; and

(iii) physical, sexual, and psychological violence perpetrated or condoned by the government of the country of which the victim is a resident, regardless of where the violence occurs.

The key focus of White House is on other country’s “Family”, “Traditional practices” and “Government”. Since the definition is so wide anything can be termed as violence. Psychological harm or suffering to women or girls can even be a suffering for not letting them watch a movie! In other words if US military wants to enter a foreign nation, essentially, there will not be any particular reason. “Violence Against Women” is another card like “Weapons of mass destruction” and women NGOs will be used as a facade.
