The Violence Against Women Act of 1994 sponsored by then-senator Joe Biden allowed women to seek civil rights remedies for gender-related crimes.  Clearly, over the last 3,000 years, human society has come a long way toward reducing domestic violence but as we are going to hear today, we equally clearly still have a long way yet to go. Our guests today to update us about domestic violence are Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine, Dr. Creagh Boulger and social worker from the Department of Psychiatry, Arianna Galligher.
