Violence Against Women
In a strange, somewhat sick way, the huge scandal that's engulfed the National Football League with release of a graphic video of one of the league's stars knocking out his girlfriend (now wife) in an elevator may be saving others from similar abuse.
State Rep. Christina Hale, D-Indianapolis, phoned me last week after reading The Times editorial on sexual assaults ("Better response to sexual assaults needed," April 7). She was excited to hear someone else cares deeply about the issue.
Everyone knows domestic violence is a major problem, but determining the right response requires careful consideration.
Sexual assaults in the military have been in the news lately, but it's not a new issue. Troops' sexual appetites have plagued the military as long as anyone can remember.
Congress on Thursday passed a more ambitious version of the Violence Against Women Act, sending the measure to President Barack Obama, who said he would sign the bill "as soon as it hits my desk."
October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. It is a time when we ask you to think about domestic violence and what you can do to help victims in your family, among your friends, and in your community.
