Senators Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Joni Ernst (R-IA), Dick Durbin (D-IL), and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) introduced a bipartisan bill on February 9 to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). First passed in 1994, VAWA provides comprehensive programs and supports to survivors of sexual violence, domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, and human trafficking. The bill’s provisions are reauthorized about once every five years to update existing protections.
