For example, some states mandate that police make an arrest(s) when summoned to a domestic violence incident whereas others do not. Most states automatically recognize another state’s protection order but 3 require that it first be registered before it can be enforced. Some states have more extensive victim assistance program and facilities than others do. First of all, I think that legislation in the same field by 2 levels of government creates unnecessary, costly duplication and the potential for confusion. Secondly and I think even more importantly, one might ask why should a woman in one state be subject to differing legal protections and resources than in another state? I can see no rationale why this should be and I think it could be classified as discriminatory treatment. I feel the laws and conditions should be identical throughout the US. Of course, I recognize a number of resources will have to vary depending on the state population and volume of domestic violence incidents, but I submit the quality of resources should be similar throughout the entire country. In other words, a female victim should be able to access the same services whether, for example, she is resident in Alaska or Florida. Feminist Movement.
