Back to Women's Empowerment

Update on June 07, 2012

Thanks for all your support of the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act! This week members of the House of Representatives and the Senate continually shot down any version that the other tried to put forward.

At a news conference last week, House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio accused the Democrats of using the reauthorization as a weapon against his party. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev fired back in a speech on the Senate floor, claiming that "Republicans are looking for any excuse to stall or kill this worthy legislation."

Please keep inviting your friends to sign the petition - this issue affects ALL victims of domestic violence, regardless of whether they fall on the right or left side of the political aisle.
