VAWA up for Reauthorization

The Violence Against Women Act is up for reauthorization in 2005. A summary from 2000 is available here. Lots of links to background information here. Also, full text of the 2005 legislation in the House and Senate.

VAWA addresses sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking, and provides for services, shelters, hotlines, etc. More info is available from the National Task Force to End Sexual and Domestic Violence Against Women and StopFamilyViolence.org. The task force site has a link for contacting your representatives.

Thanks to this blogger and this one for the reminders.
