The GOP doesn't really care about violence against Native American women/the Violence Against Women Act. Shocking.

From the article: "The statistics are indeed horrific: one in three Native women will be raped in their lifetimes; two in five are victims of domestic violence; three out of five will be physically assaulted. Native women are 2.5 times more likely to be assaulted—and more than twice as likely to be stalked—than other women in the United States. On some reservations, the murder rate of Native women is ten times the national average."

Seriously, how can they hear stats like these and not see this as a problem that needs fixing? As human beings these women deserve far better.
