Lindsey Siegel Calls for VAWA’s Reauthorization

Skadden Fellow Lindsey Siegel authored an op-ed for The Atlanta Journal- Constitution calling on Congress to “immediately reauthorize and fully fund the Violence Against Women Act” (“Stopping Violence on Women,” Jan. 5). In the article, Lindsey recounted Georgia domestic violence cases on which she has worked — cases involving women smothered, held hostage, poisoned and shot at. “I have seen firsthand the impact that the Violence Against Women Act ... has on our ability to fight these abuses in Georgia,” Lindsey said.
