    Native American Women Finally Gain More Protection From Rape and Abuse Thanks to VAWA

    Thanks to the latest reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), the U.S. government is beginning to take steps to strengthen protections for victims of domestic violence within American Indian tribes. On Thursday, the Justice Department announced that three tribes will participate in a pilot program that will allow them to prosecute non-NativeĀ­ men for abuse against Native American women, an initiative that will eventually be expanded to additional tribes.
