The European Union has taken initiative in drafting a bill creating a policy that will enact a European protection order for women in domestic violence situations. The order would essentially mean that protection orders against abusers would translate across European borders. Interestingly enough, the U.S. does this on a state by state basis, meaning that abusers can follow their victims across state lines.
I don’t want to jump the gun and get too excited about this, because nothing’s been passed yet. In addition, it is difficult to get international law passed due to navigating different legal systems. But when legislators (who in this case, are mostly men) are talking about this issue, it’s pretty great.
The Guardian has it HERE.
