Here is a victory for every battered woman/man/child. I hope this news reaches every corner of our nation to send a clear message on how to treat batterers. I have to thank Marcia Pappas, NOW-NYS President, who worked endlessly to win this fight. Thanks to all of YOU for calling/emailing/signing petitions and everything else you did to get anti-women, anti-gay Monserrate out of the State Senate.
