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.

100 Day Mark for the Obama Administration. And after 8 years of Bush-Cheney hell, I must say, it’s been a great 100 days, recession or no. Obama has jumped on foreign policy initiatives, nuclear proliferation, going green, climate change, the shambles of an economy the repugs gave us, healthcare, our over expanded military, shutting Guantanamo, and standing up to torture. Obama has worked tirelessly for the past 100 days to put the United States back together and gain ground with the rest of the world. Too bad Dubya had 8 years to tear us to pieces.
I know if any conservatives get on Pinky Links I’m going to get comments full of angry Faux News buzzwords (enter Sandra the Commenter’s brain for this insanity). So, I thought I’d provide several News Org Report Cards on how the Administration is doing.
