The New Normal of Violence Against Women

Guerrero: Wake up, Democrats. Don’t let Republicans own the issue of violent crime.

Sen. John Morse: I think we’re in an issue here where the debate has been largely between liberals and conservatives. I have been very encouraged by the polls on the issue of violent crime and I think that we have a lot of work to do as we go forward. So I think it’s important, as I said, for us, the debate has been largely between liberals and conservatives. The public views crime broadly. There’s been, and there remains, a debate about, you know, in my view, the impact of gun violence and the extent to which it has an impact on — on our economy.

But now we have entered a new phase, and that is the question, as I say, of violence against women, which we have been having for some time.

So we have to start talking about violence against women in a broader way, and not just in the context of gun violence. That’s the other change that is going to have to occur in order for us to move forward.

I don’t want to minimize the issue of gun violence. We have to keep talking about it — that’s what the debate is about. But as I say, we have to go beyond that in terms of how we view violence against women in our society, and we have to recognize that violence against women is a part of the discussion.
