Since 1911, March 8 has been recognized as International Women’s Day, a day to mark the economic, political, and social achievements of women.
This year’s theme is “Inspiring Change;” we couldn’t think of a more appropriate theme for 2014. This year also marks the 20th and 30th anniversaries of landmark legislation supporting survivors of domestic violence: the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) and the Family Violence Prevention and Services Act (FVPSA). These laws have inspired and created tremendous change across the United States – they have supported shelters and crisis lines, transitional housing and rural outreach programs, legal advocacy services and training for law enforcement and judges, and so much more.
