Joe Biden = Swoontastic

Before you get your vote on in 11 days, be sure to watch this piece highlighting the groundbreaking strides Joe Biden has made for victims and survivors of domestic violence and abuse. This 6 minute video lets one woman tell her story and her voice echoes the millions of women in this country who are now safe because of The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) or who will find safety through it. 1 out of 4 women report being victims of interpersonal violence, this number is absurd and unconscionable. If elected, the Obama/Biden administration is one that will fight for the eradication of violence against women and girls guaranteed.

i love it when people use the word "unconscionable." i'm so glad you shared this video.

it amazes me how some feminists :ahem: who claim they care about the issue of interpersonal violence can still respect themselves while purporting to support a mccain-palin ticket. THAT'S unconscionable.
