VAWA 1994-The Response to Rape: Detours on the Road to Equal Justice [pdf]

This report culminates a three year investigation by the Judiciary Committee’s majority staff concerning the causes and effects of violence against women.

Through a series of hearings and reports, the committee has studied this violence in an effort to determine what steps we can take to make women more safe.
