Men Murder Women

In a new study titled "When Men Murder Women: An Analysis of 2006 Homicide Date" by The Violence Policy Center and released on September 29, 2008, statistics reveal horrifyingly high numbers of women murdered by intimate partners. In fact, women were 12x more likely to be killed by a man they knew than a male stranger. Furthermore, the study reports that "Compared to a black man, a black woman is far more likely to be killed by her spouse, an intimate acquaintance, or a family member than by a stranger."

Nevada ranks the #1 State where women are murdered by men they know for the second year in a row.
