Alison Grimes: One in six US women will be victims of domestic violence

PROTECTING VICTIMS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE: As Secretary of State, Alison championed the first-ever address confidentiality program for victims of domestic violence to ensure their safety and security are not compromised when they vote. In the Senate, Alison will continue to be a voice for victims of domestic violence. According to the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services, "a woman is assaulted every 15 seconds" and one in six women in the U.S. will be victims of domestic violence over the course of her lifetime--troubling statistics that must be addressed.

Despite political attempts to disguise his real record, Mitch McConnell has repeatedly opposed the Violence Against Women Act and even blocked an effort to vote on the bill to protect women.
