  1. This was an excellent article. I love how objective it was while calling out what needs to be addressed. My only change I would like to see is the references to domestic violence being called what it really is, in order to make things more clear.

    I found these statistics in an article by Jane Gilmore.

    In 2013/14
    * 87% of homicides were committed by men.
    * 98% of sexual assaults were committed by men.
    * 83% of non-sexual assaults were committed by men.
    * 90% of robberies were committed by men.
    * 92% of abductions were committed by men.
