After doing a bit of research, maybe this bill should be called the defense of battered husbands at the expense of battered wives act. Your graphic says that the murder rate of women only dropped by 35% over the specified period. The overall murder rate in the country dropped by 41% during that same period.

These are fair points, but there's too much documented evidence:The research is expansive on the issue.

I'm not arguing that VAWA is a silver bullet agianst domestic violence, but the research is far too expansive suggesting it is a very strong contributor. The idea that it's a "sham," as patteeu puts it, is comical and completely unsupported by evidence of any kind.
