Rumored Romney Running Mate Marco Rubio Votes No On Violence Against Women Act

Senator Marco Rubio, the Republican rumored possible running mate for presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney today voted against the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), which has passed time and time again in a bipartisan fashion for decades. this year the VAWA became a partisan nightmare for Republicans, who opposed extending protections to LGBT people, immigrants, and Native Americans. Because violence against some women is deplorable, but apparently, not all women are equal in the eyes of the GOP.

The House is slated to take up a similar but less-comprehensive bill, and, if passed, the two will have to be hammered out in committee. President Obama, who supports the updated reauthorization, is expected to sign the bill.

No Democrat voted against the bill, and 15 Republicans reached across the aisle to join Democrats in voting to pass the bill.

So, how did your Senator vote?

In the subsequent decades women's rights again became an important issue in the English speaking world. By the 1960s the movement was called "feminism" or "women's liberation." Reformers wanted the same pay as men, equal rights in law, and the freedom to plan their families or not have children at all. Their efforts were met with mixed results.
