President Obama Signs Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act

VAWA signing by President

On Friday, March 8th in International Women’s Day, President Obama signed a bill that both strengthened and reauthorized the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA).  Thanks to this bipartisan agreement, thousands of women and men across the country who are victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, dating violence and stalking will be able to access resources they need in their communities to help heal from their trauma. In addition, thousands of law enforcement officers will be better equipped to stop violence before it starts, and respond to calls of help when they are needed.Valerie Jarrett, Senior Advisor to the President and Chair of the White House Council on Women and Girls
