New Policy Permits Asylum for Battered Women

New Policy Permits Asylum for Battered Women

"The Obama administration has opened the way for foreign women who are victims of severe domestic beatings and sexual abuse to receive asylum in the United States. The action reverses a Bush administration stance in a protracted and passionate legal battle over the possibilities for battered women to become refugees." New York Times, July 15, 2009.
