WASHINGTON -- A longtime advocate for victims of domestic violence and
sexual assault has been named to a new post advising the White House on
those issues.

Vice President Joe Biden announced the appointment Friday of Lynn Rosenthal,

violence against women isn't ignored and the perpetrators are held

A former director of a women's shelter, Rosenthal was executive director of
the National Network to End Domestic Violence from 2000 to 2006. And she
worked as director of the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence.
