The first question that we should raise is how many states actually have domestic violence laws? As we are going to talk about the USA in particular, I am glad to announce that not only all of the states have national laws that regulate domestic violence, but this topic is also under the federal law. Domestic violence is considered to be a federal crime under the Violence Against Women Act (“VAWA”). Moreover, since 2011, twenty-six local governments in the United States have passed resolutions declaring freedom from domestic violence to be a fundamental human right, and also acknowledged the responsibility of the government to ensure that right.
However, do you know which are the 15 States with Toughest Domestic Violence Laws?
