The Guardian’s Katharine Viner reminds us about Lord Cromer, the British consul general in Egypt from 1883. Cromer believed the Egyptians were morally and culturally inferior in their treatment of women and that they should be “persuaded or forced” to become “civilised” by disposing of the veil

Domestic violence report: Over 1,700 women slain by men in one year, 93% knew killer | WashingtonExaminer.com

Despite a nationwide effort to curb domestic violence, 1,706 women were slain by men in 2012 — and virtually all knew their killer.
A new analysis timed for this week’s 20th anniversary of the Violence Against Women Act signed into law Sept. 13, 1994, also found that 62 percent of the women killed were “wives, common-law wives, ex-wives, or girlfriends of the offenders.”
Many of the women died of gunshots. In fact, the report from the Violence Policy Center and provided to Secrets suggested that women don’t get a gun because women with guns in homes were three times more likely to be murdered than those with no gun in the home.
The Center’s report, titled “When Men Murder Women,” looked at 2012 data, the latest available. Alaska, South Carolina and Oklahoma were the top female murder states.
