Stat Can 2010 profile -of police reported incidents, violence against women is still more than double than that against men.

On the upside, it appears family homicide is decreasing. Unfortunately, depressing when we look at the #'s of our children and note our girls are 4 times more likely to be sexually assaulted than our boys.

I would note, the above stats are police reported only.

Of course, as we can see from recent news with Ghomeshi and twittered at hashtag BeenRapedNeverReported, the most gendered violent crime is the most under reported.
