    • DeLauro Highlights Resources Available To Domestic Violence Victims

      One Day before 20th Anniversary of Violence Against Women Act

      NEW HAVEN, CT—Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro (CT-3) highlighted the resources available to domestic violence victims in a press conference on September 12 at at BHcare’s Ansonia offices. In addition to the reprehensible news this week about former Ravens player Ray Rice, Saturday marks the 20th anniversary of the Violence Against Women Act.

      More than three women die daily in America because of violence inflicted by their husbands or boyfriends. Domestic and sexual violence are the most under-reported crimes, but studies estimate one-third of women experience severe physical violence, rape or stalking by an intimate partner and nearly 20 percent have been raped.

      Congress reauthorized the Violence Against Women Act in February 2013, nearly after it had lapsed for nearly 500 days.
