Senate Recognizes Domestic Violence Awareness Month

On September 15, the Senate approved, by unanimous consent, S. Res. 566, a resolution supporting the goals and ideals of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

Sponsored by Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA), the resolution notes that one in five women and one in seven men have experienced severe physical intimate partner violence, and that “one in 11 women and one in 21 men who have experienced sexual violence, physical violence, or stalking by an intimate partner missed work or school as a result of the abuse.”

The resolution pledges continued support for programs “designed to assist survivors, hold perpetrators accountable, and bring an end to domestic violence.”
