Yesterday was the eighth anniversary of Battered Immigrant Women Protection Act becoming law. From the Jewish Women's Archive: "This act works to assist immigrants who are victims of domestic violence by providing legal protections that can aid them in escaping violent situations and securing court protection.
Immigrant women are particularly vulnerable because they often must rely on the legal residence status of their abusers. The Battered Immigrant Women Protection Act helps immigrant victims of domestic violence take control of their lives without fear of deportation."

Today is the anniversary of when Anna Rosenberg became the first woman to receive the Medal of Freedom, which is the highest civilian award offered by the United States. More info here.

Also, this is still true:
