Grants for me but not for thee

The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) serves few male victims even though it was a href=”http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Violence_Against_Women_Act”reauthorized in 2005/a to include a href=”http://www.reason.com/news/show/32056.html”male victims/a of violence; in fact, a recent a href=”http://www.mediaradar.org/ovw_foia_data.php”report from the General Accounting Office /a(GAO) shows that only 3.9% of legal aid money goes to males for legal assistance. Do men not ask for legal help or is it refused when they do? If the latter, it is no wonder men without funds cannot get custody of their kids or do so poorly in divorce settlements. Thanks to Jon for pointing out this report.
