It has been of more concern as to the social failure to acknowledge, remedy and even prevent this particular victimization of violence against women. The courts and police forces in various nations have continually offering little concern on the women who have been abused, stalked, raped or even sexually harassed. They have neglected their responsibility and instead blamed the women for their predicaments (French 1998). The women urges out that, women who are raped do wear wrong clothes are found in the wrong places or even behave in the wrong way.
Where as the women who are battered by their husbands should have read the signals early enough and leave their partners and the prostitutes gets the rough treatment that they do get because they have decided to sell sex and thus seen as willing participants (French 1998). Thus, the law argues to be offering a fair and justice treatment to all of the nation citizens, as the victims of the sexual assault and spouse battering should have foreseen the potentiality for harm and avoided the incident (French 1998)
With this particular relaxation on the implementation of the law effectively, it has resulted into many women in this world living in a constant state of fear of violence from their partners wherever they are, fear for their lives whenever they go and visit and even fear for the safety of their female children. This has led to great tension to women in their lives in that they do not even think of anything positive from the law (Grusky 2001). This particular law Violence against Women Act which was passed on in 1994 was meant to impose punishment to the defaulters and giving relevant help to the victim of the incidence.
None the less, as much as the law is in existence, it is non effective, this has led to many women being ineffective in the development of the nation as they are afraid of the kind of violence that will be treated to them (Sweetman1999). Because of this discrimination of the women in the society, the women health organization sat down again in the year 2006 and restructured the law so as to at least protect their women against harsh conditions in the society. On too this new structured law act, more funding were added for legal aid programs and services of which some of it included:
Provision of funds for the rape crisis centers: this will enable the managers of the centre to be able to attend to the victims effectively. Establishment of the violence prevention programs: These programs will provide the rule and regulations for protecting the women against violation in the society. With these same rules, it will have at least a provision of punishment for the crime offender. Programs to meet the needs of woman of different races or ethnicities.
Provision of better services for female children and teens that are infected: this will enable the young women to growth up appreciating the society other than coming up with the negative attitude about the society of which they grow in. it will also give the young female children the ability to be activists in the prevention of the violence against women. Invents more and more programs and services for victims with disabilities: these programs will offer some of the knowledge to the women and make them be productive in the society.
Provision of better protections programs for the victims who have been evicted from apartments because of being victimized of domestic violence or stalking: this will give the women the positive attitude to live in the society without being neglected by the fellow members of the community. With this effect, at least the violence against women has now been attended to by the public and the nation as a whole. This has also reduced the blames that the society were imposing on the women and now concentrate on the way they can reduce this particular form of violence in the society.
