We recently surveyed registered voters across America to see if they agree with recent reforms to the Violence Against Women Act. We specifically asked about reforms to stop waste, fraud, discriminatory practices, and false allegations.
- Stop waste and fraud – 69.5%
- Stop discrimination – 65.9%
- Stop false allegations – 63.5%
The survey shows strong support for reform among key voting blocs including women and young people. One notable finding: About 7 in 10 persons who are a victim of domestic violence or who personally know an abuse victim support the proposed changes.

“Even though we have begun the process of reform, America has a long way to go before true victims of domestic violence get priority and damaging false allegations come to an end,” says SAVE spokesman Philip W. Cook. “No one knows this better than the victims of domestic violence themselves.”
Together we will get this done,
