The purpose of this study was to provide in-depth policy analysis of the Violence Against Women Act of 1994 (VAWA) and subsequent legislation. Significant progress has been made through grass root advocacy groups, criminal justice system, grants, shelters and services but domestic violence continues to exist. The analysis presents a historical overview of literature, the suffering women have endured through secular and societal norms. An emphasis was put on the disproportionate rate which domestic violence occurs to poverty-stricken families, immigrant women, women of color and their children. Implications for Child Protection Services involvement with children of color is highlighted as rising problem. Discussion of social work practice and implication of future research are presented.
