Fred Strebeigh wrote a statement on Senator Joseph Biden and the history of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), earlier this week.
Strebeigh piece provides an interesting perspective on the VAWA and Senator Biden’s role in authoring the legislation.
VAWA is a federal act that provides funding to rape crisis centers throughout the country for prevention and response to sexual violence and “Biden has proclaimed it the ‘most important legislative accomplishment’ of his Senate career.”
The piece appeared in The New Republic: A Journal of Politics and the Arts.
