Advocating for Women


Advocating for Women

The first female Attorney General of Illinois, Lisa Madigan has long advocated in state government for women’s safety.

Understanding that the painful effects of sexual assault, domestic violence and other forms of violence against women impact every person in Illinois, Attorney General Madigan and her office offer numerous programs and services aimed at protecting the rights and well-being of women. These programs and services include:

  • Grant funding through the Violent Crime Victims Assistance Act to help victims of violent crime recover and rebuild their lives;
  • Trainings and seminars to provide law enforcement and first responders with better tools to prevent and solve crimes against women, prosecute domestic abusers and sex offenders, and help victims cope with the trauma of violent crime; and
  • A comprehensive directory to make services more readily available to women in need.

Through a vigorous legislative agenda in Springfield and innovative partnerships with law enforcement around the state, Attorney General Madigan also continues to work toward improved sex offender management in Illinois, a reduced rate of crime against women, and more aggressive prosecutions of criminals who abuse women.
