Violence Against Women Act controversy? It’s not controversial

First passed in 1994 with broad bipartisan support, and reauthorized TWICE since with improved protections, the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) is a critical law that has had a tremendous impact on reducing the national rate of intimate partner violence. One would think that passing a bill that works to ensure women are safe and healthy would be a no brainer, but that was not the case last year. Lawmakers in Congress failed to come to an agreement to reauthorize VAWA. More specifically, the House refused to pass an inclusive VAWA bill that meets the needs of all victims, including Native Americans, immigrants, and LGBT victims.
