Breaking news: The Senate just voted to renew the Violence Against Women Act!

Momentum’s on our side, but House Speaker John Boehner and other representatives continue to block the bill from coming up for a vote. That’s why I created a petition on SignOn.org urging the U.S. House of Representatives to renew the Violence Against Women Act.

In 1983, I was a victim of rape at gunpoint. At the time, I was a single mother of a five-year old daughter and attending a local community college.

The Violence Against Women Act initially strengthened federal penalties for repeat sex offenders, mandated that women didn’t have to pay for their own rape exams, and helped communities develop law enforcement units dedicated to violence against women. This Act has been allowed to expire since it was passed, and House Republicans continue to block it—this is unacceptable.

Thanks!
