Officials Announce Plan to Fight Violence Against Women

Sept. 5 - A group of Alabama officials announced Wednesday a statewide plan to fight violence against women.

The goal of the plan is to inform every potential victim of domestic violence and rape of their rights and the steps they can take to protect themselves. The plan will also help law enforcement, doctors and other public officials recognize the crimes.

The Alabama Criminal Justice Department Information Center states that more than a thousand rapes and 20,000 domestic violence cases are reported every year.
