The cast of "Younger" is taking a stand to protect women against violence.
The show’s stars -- Sutton Foster, Hilary Duff, Debi Mazar, Miriam Shor, Nico Tortorella, Peter Hermann, Molly Bernard and Charles Michael Davis – have teamed up with The United State of Women for a new PSA supporting the renewal of the Violence Against Women Act.
The Violence Against Women Act, enacted in 1994, supports survivors of crimes of domestic violence, sexual assault, dating violence and stalking. In April the House passed a bipartisan bill to reauthorize the act for five more years, but the Senate has not yet passed it.
“Girls, women, people who identify as women, and non-binary people are disproportionately affected by violence,” cast members say in the PSA.
“Right now long-standing funds to help and protect survivors of gender-based violence are under threat,” they continue. "It’s time to renew the Violence Against Women Act.”
The PSA urges fans to take action by going to TheUnitedStateofWomen.org.
"Younger" is currently airing its sixth season on TV Land.
