VAWA up for Renewal


Pseudo-Adrienne has a long post on Congress’ efforts—or, at points, lack thereof—to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act. Worth reading. Since the trend among mainstream Democrats of late is to shy away from women’s issues—on the ironclad logic that, somehow, alienating half the population is the key to sweet electoral victory—the prospects don’t look good. But read her post, and read these two cover stories on domestic violence in the last issue of Mother Jones. And then this post by Jeanne of Body and Soul. All good pieces.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
