Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act
In December 2010, President Obama signed the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act, which provides funding for nearly 1,700 shelters and programs for victims of domestic violence and their children. One in every four women will experience domestic violence, according to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, so women especially benefit from this legislation. The act also supports the National Domestic Violence Hotline, a resource that links victims with the necessary resources to live safe lives.
