The Violence Against Women Act, est. 1994

This week marks a milestone in women's and human rights nationwide. 15 years ago, on September 13th 1994, the Violence Against Women Act or VAWA was signed into law.

I wrote about this legislation in a blog I contribute to for SOAR (Speaking Out About Rape), you can read the post here: http://teamsoarblog.wordpress.com/2009/09/16/15th-anniversary-of-the-violence-against-women-act/

As I mention in the post, why are so many waiting until violence hits close to home to get involved? If we all do just one thing to help, imagine what a difference that would make in the lives of people and in the world.
