Governor Signs Safety and Crime Laws

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to participate in Governor McDonnell’s signing of laws to protect our citizens from sexual and domestic violence. I had the opportunity to speak and this event about the importance of this legislation in protecting women from becoming victims of such abuse. I am not saying these bills are needed because women are weak but because women can be subjected to situations that put them in vulnerable situations that don’t happen to men. These bills are an important step towards protecting and supporting victims of these forms of violence.

You can see a full list of the bills that were signed here.
