House Republicans Reject Violence Against Women Act
The House Republicans Reject Violence Against Women Act. In response, this evening, Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney (DNY) posed the question, “How could anyone oppose the Violence Against Women Act?” This landmark legislation provides support to domestic abuse survivors and gives prosecutors the resources to convict violent abusers — but Republicans refused to renew it on the House floor today.
Seven years ago, the bill passed the House 415 to 4 and then cruised through the Senate unanimously. Last month, a new version of the bill passed the Judiciary Committee, but only after all eight Republicans on the panel, all men, voted against it.
