Here is a suggested message:

I urge you to support the Treaty for the Rights of Women and work toward full Senate ratification. Women in Afghanistan, Iraq and around the world need our support for ending sex trafficking, educating girls and promoting women’s health. This treaty can make a huge difference in efforts to save women’s lives, help their families and promote economic self-sufficiency.
