4. The version passed by the Senate today

The version passed by the Senate today will next go to the House for a vote, where it is expected to encounter some difficulties, particularly over the protections of tribal women included in the bill.

5. Rubio is a sexist

and unfortunately, my Senator. As a woman, and native New Yorker, I will remember this, and his no vote for Sandy relief.

Edit: Florida has Lesbians, Immigrants, Native Reservations, AND gets Hurricanes. He is cutting off his nose to spit his face.

8. List of new coverage

It also expands VAWA to include new protections for LGBT and Native American victims of domestic violence, to give more attention to sexual assault prevention and to help reduce a backlog in processing rape kits.
