    Nearly half of all women's murders worldwide are carried out by their partner

    Lovers' deadly toll on women: Nearly half of all women's murders worldwide are carried out by their partner

    • In contrast, just one in 16 men are killed by their 'significant other'
    • A World Health Organisation-led study looked at murder in 169 countries
    • Researchers compiled details of 492,340 murders over 20 years
    By Daily Mail Reporter
    PUBLISHED: 02:22 GMT, 21 June 2013 | UPDATED: 02:23 GMT, 21 June 2013

    Up to half of all women murdered worldwide are killed by a partner, according to new research.
    A new report reveals at least one in seven murders are committed by an intimate partner.
    And 'significant others' are responsible for between a third and a half of all female murders, compared to just one in 16 male homicides (6.3 per cent).




    Shocking: A new report reveals at least one in seven murders are committed by an intimate partner



    The World Health Organisation, along with the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine analysed a series of studies published in the past 20 years.
    Helped by the South African Medical Research Council, the report looked the global prevalence of intimate partner murder and international statistics from 169 countries.
    The researchers identified 118 studies, compiling data on 492,340 homicides from 66 countries.


    They found that countries with the highest rates are those in


    - South East Asia (58.8 per cent), high income countries - such as

    - Australia and Andorra - (41.2 per cent),

    - the Americas (40.5 per cent) and

    - the Africa region (40.1 per cent).


    The lowest murder of women by partner rates were countries in the low and middle income western

    - Pacific region (19.1 per cent), the low-income and middle-income

    - European region (20 per cent), and the

    - eastern Mediterranean region (14.4 per cent).


    However, among murders of men, rates of partner homicide were highest in

    - high-income countries (6.3 per cent),

    - Africa (4.1 per cent), and

    - low income European countries (3.6 per cent).



    Disturbing: 'Significant others' are responsible for between a third and a half of all female murders, compared to just one in 16 male homicides



    The researchers, whose paper forms part of a larger study about domestic violence due to be presented in Geneva, say the true magnitude is unknown due to a lack of data.
    In fact, at least a fifth of all murders in the report did not mention the victim-offender relationship and were recorded as non-partner murders.


    Dr Heidi Stvckl, of the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, said: 'Our results underscore that women are disproportionately vulnerable to violence and murder by an intimate partner, and their needs have been neglected for far too long.


    'Such homicides are often the ultimate outcome of a failed societal, health, and criminal justice response to intimate partner violence.'


    'More needs to be done, particularly to increase investment in intimate partner violence prevention, to support women experiencing intimate partner violence (most women killed by a partner have been in long-term abusive relationships), and to control gun ownership for people with a history of violence.'


    Dr Rosana Norman, of the Queensland Children's Medical Research Institute at the University of Queensland, Australia, said: 'These findings have important implications for efforts to prevent intimate partner homicides and the need for further research.


    'Prevention of homicide of women and men by intimate partners is important. Research into the complex issues related to intimate relationships can only be undertaken if improved data are collected in a systematic fashion.'

    That means that "the other half of them nearly get murdered by others? Just who are those other's?

    Unrelated murders, car murders, ovarian cancer murders, breast cancer murders, bi-sexual murders, gay sex partner murders, extended family murders, cheating on the husband murders, hit man murders, sleep related murders, over eating, clogged bowels, can't talk, no cell phone, no beauty salon, no cigarettes, lack of tissues, crying to death....others?

    Do these numbers include war killings/murders?

    Another flawed and bugus study.

    We eat it up, though.

    It's from the Mail.

    Doesn't mention that in the Western world, those most likely to be murdered are young men, though.

    I'd probably do the missus in if i lived in a pretentious magazine house like the one pictured.

    And as a sidenote, there is no way the dead body outline is a woman - there is no sticky out bits in the chest area.

    ^ True. Maybe it's a condo in Patters. Would explain the bad decor...

    Half of all square jawed Russian wenches fall over.




    Nearly half of the Russian wenches who hold their breath to squeeze through narrow doorways hit their chins and fall over whilst their other half sits back pissing themselves laughing and necking bottles of Stella and vodka.

    It'll just be ignored. Killing women doesn't count unless it's done by Muslims. If muslims were mentioned in the article the TD numbnuts would be all over it, as they're not mentioned our resident pack of bigots keep quiet.

    It does count. But the fact is mentioned that in many of these countries it is the acceptance of that society or culture that allows the mindset to persist. Unfortunately, it is unrealistic to expect anything to change. So, I'm not really sure what the article or the study hope to achieve.

    What are you on about Dr.Bob? Sympathy for murdered women? Certainly nobodies taking the piss on the facts. Women are in for a rough ride apparently when it comes to all sorts of abuse even murder.

    The post OP does not mention that alcohol is the primary reason for most domestic abuse as well as murders and violent crime.

    Yup, its a very sad world we have, and women certainly do get the short end of the stick, however they are not the only ones living in an unkind world or suffering from violence.

    I don't think if the numbers were about say African women or Muslim women and children you'd find any less sympathy for their cause here as well. At least not on my part, its a shame, but I'm not the one doing the murdering am I?

    Killing a beast that is already locked up and shackled gets more attention/sympathy.
