Inspired by The Sun's campaign against Domestic Violence (which strangely seems to only be about male violence against women) I had a quick look at a campaigning website:
2 women are killed each week by a current or former partner in England and Wales
Domestic violence kills more 19-44 year old women than anything else - more than cancer, road accidents and muggings.
Wait a moment - that is 104 women killed - an appalling number, far more than I have noticed in the crime reports but let us take it as a given. In 2004 (source) 5391 women of that age range died - so every other cause of death caused less than 100 deaths, that is at least 52 other "causes of death". Me thinks they are over egging their cause. The last figure I saw was that total deaths on roads were about 3500 people a year, I don't have the split by age and sex but do you believe that it would be less than 104 for this large group? When you are campaigning for a worthy cause you shouldn't need to make stuff up, it doesn't help, it makes cynics like me distrust everything you say.
