Abstract

In this exploratory article we draw attention to the full faith and credit guarantees offered by the 1994 Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). We begin by noting the significance of new interstate protections for battered women in light of the difficulties and dangers they face as they flee across state lines in search of safety. We argue that full faith and credit guarantees are a progressive development in the struggle against domestic violence. However, we acknowledge and examine a number of specific problems in implementing these guarantees. The article closes with some recommendations for future research into the implementation of interstate protections under VAWA.
