Statistics Canada Releases DV Report

A new study done by Statistics Canada was released yesterday, showing that men and women were abused at about equal rates for several kinds of violence. Canadian women's groups are up in arms about this, of course, and The Toronto Star printed this article which outlines the study's findings and the complaints of many feminists who obviously feel threatened to let go of any part of their "victim status". The report shows violence against women has been declining significantly, at a much higher rate than violence against men has been declining. Peter Dudley submitted the primary source for the study here.
