The Violence Against Women Act was passed today overwhelmingly but the United States Senate. This crucial act simply protects women from domestic abuse and violence. The legislation will especially strengthen protections for students, immigrants, Native American women, the LGBT community and victims of sex trafficking. A vote against this act is a vote against the women of America. Only 22 Republicans, all men, voted against the act and thus voted against American women. Remember their names......one in particular to remember is Senator Marco Rubio (R-Florida).
