Day 7 — My journey to find reasons to vote for Hillary rather than against Trump.
Hillary was a champion of The Office on Violence Against Women. Joe Biden was its originator, but it floundered for years and has had to be reinstated three times. As one of only two women in the Senate, Hillary worked with Biden to ensure its passage and to protect pieces of it that some Senators tried to take out.
It’s mission: The mission of the Office on Violence Against Women (OVW), a component of the U.S. Department of Justice, is to provide federal leadership in developing the national capacity to reduce violence against women and administer justice for and strengthen services to victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking.
Full disclosure: Bill Clinton signed the original bill. After a big fight, George W. Bush signed the first renewal. Barack Obama passed the third iteration.
