Relationship abuse: The forgotten half of SARA

We as students can and should expect our administration to play a proactive role in addressing violence against women, rather than waiting to institute change until public anger surfaces. Thus, I urge SARA to live up to its name and not treat relationship abuse as an aside, casually slapped on to the end of an acronym, but rather address it with the severity that its victims and survivors deserve.
