Update of Violence Against Women Act

Sad news today about the Violence Against Women Act. It has not been been extended to help more Native American women, among other women, that desperately need help or assistance. 

This just emphasizes the lacking interest to help women by the House of Representatives branch of our government. The Senate passed the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act, back in April of last year. We were hoping that the House of Representatives would have it up for a vote, before the end of last year… but it didn't. Instead, they let it die, without bothering to vote for it.

Seems like women are still considered 2nd class citizens in this country.
