Protecting Women

President Obama last week reauthorized the Violence Against Women Act, which serves to hand down stricter punishments for violent offenders and to provide resources for victims of sex crimes. In a Gallup poll released March 8, 82 percent of U.S. adults said that if it were up to them, they, too, would support a law that provides federal funding for programs geared toward helping female victims and prosecuting offenders. (Photo: Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images)
