U.S. Senator Charles Schumer is calling on other legislators to push through a bill intended to curb violence against women.

The proposed law would improve law enforcement training, crack down on internet stalking and place special emphasis on stopping sexual violence in rural communities.

There were more than 43,000 incidents of domestic violence in upstate New York in 2012.

The “Violence Against Women Act” is designed to give the government the tools needed to combat such acts.
