When Men Murder Women
Violence Policy Center: A new report details a state-by-state comparison of the number of women murdered by men with Nevada ranking first in the nation, with a rate of 2.96 victims per 100,000 women. Ranked behind Nevada were: #2 Vermont, #3 Alabama, #4 North Carolina, #5 Tennessee, #6 Texas, tied for #7 Arkansas and Missouri, #9 South Carolina and #10 Georgia. The study uses the most recent data available from the Federal Bureau of Investigation's unpublished Supplementary Homicide Report and is released each year to coincide with Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October.
