Violence Against Women Act The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) which was passed in 1994, marked a significant movement in response to domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking. This Act requires a collaborative effort in developing a system of response to these crimes between law enforcement, prosecutors, health care providers, and nonprofit groups. Through the Federal Government's pledge of significant funds to improve the present system's response to victims of these crimes, each state can become more efficient in guaranteeing the safety and well-being of all women. National Institute of Justice South Carolina's Response Under the Violence Against Women Act, The South Carolina Attorney General's Office has received a grant from the Department of Justice to develop state-of-the-art law enforcement protocols and aggressive prosecution procedures for criminal domestic violence, criminal sexual conduct, and stalking crimes. Under this Violence Against Women grant, the development of such procedures will result in the creation of South Carolina's first comprehensive, collaborative approach to combating these crimes.

Attorney General Chandler launches "Work to End Domestic Violence Day"
CONTACT: Corey Bellamy
FRANKFORT, Ky. (Tuesday, October 3, 2000)As part of national Work to End Domestic Violence Day, Attorney General Ben Chandler is calling upon all Kentucky employers to help educate their workforce about domestic violence. " I urge all Kentucky businesses to work with their local domestic violence officials to ensure that all employees better understand the dynamics of domestic violence, "General Chandler said. Chandler called on all employers to recognize that many battered women are also working women. "All too often, these victims view their place of employment as their one safe haven, but all too frequently, the stalking, threats and violence follow them to work," Chandler said. "As your Attorney General, I urge all Kentucky employers to turn the workplace into a setting where their battered employees can get help." "My office is ready to work with you to plan employer-sponsored seminars and meetings to educate workers about domestic violence. Millions of women, men and children are abused nationwide. This violence costs employers every year in terms of decreased productivity and increased absenteeism and turnover rates. Together, we can work to eliminate the scourge of domestic violence."

    Violence takes many forms but is almost always someone trying to control someone else. It is unacceptable whenever it happens and whoever is the victim. Violence by a family member can be devastating. The Domestic Violence Act protects people in domestic relationships including married and unmarried couples, gay and lesbian couples, children, relatives, anyone in a close personal relationship, flatmates or other people who share accommodation. People do not need to be living together but need only to have a close personal relationship to be covered by the legislation. The relationships of landlord and tenant, employer/employee or employees within the same business are not "domestic relationships" unless the parties also have a close personal relationship. Other legislation covers these situations. Domestic violence is violence against a person by another person with whom they are in a domestic relationship. It can be physical, sexual or psychological.

    I would like to thank Drs Jo Richardson and Gene Feder for their help and advice.
    Introduction For the purposes of this guidance, the term domestic violence is used to describe the physical, emotional and mental abuse of women by male partners or ex-partners. The impact of this violence is felt strongly, but not always explicitly, in every general practitioner's consulting room. The manner in which the general practitioner responds to a woman's first tentative attempt to seek help to change her situation can make an immense difference to that woman's life and those of her children (Richardson and Feder, 1997). The 1989 Home Office Research Study on Domestic Violence (Smith, 1989) and a subsequent editorial in the

    Domestic violence and child abuse often co-exist . If you find one of these, evaluate the family for the other. Managing these situations is complex . It may help to share the decision making process with other members of your team, or the “named” doctor or nurse for child protection in your PC0. Make a risk assessment for the child . Is the child at risk of significant harm from either parent?
