Today, the US House of Representatives passed the comprehensive Senate version of the Violence Against Women reauthorization Act of 2013 (VAWA) by a vote of 286-138. The Senate passed the same bill on February 12 by a bipartisan vote of 78-22. President Obama will sign the bill into law in the next couple of days.
This was my way of celebrating! Yippee!
