For quite some time I tried to post in this blog’s section on women’s violence any stories of violent women that I ran across or that were brought to my attention.
Lately I tried to make more intense efforts to find such stories of women’s violence. Here is what I came across just during the past four days:
|Jan. 11, 2009||Woman poisoned husband|
|Jan. 11, 2009||Woman kills husband by shooting him in chest|
|Jan. 11, 2009||Woman critically burned husband in arson|
|Jan. 11, 2009||Woman beats up elderly husband|
|Jan. 11, 2009||Woman arrested for stabbing husband|
|Jan. 11, 2009||No jail for mom who seriously abused daughter|
|Jan. 11, 2009||Mom shot son in face
|Jan. 11, 2009||Woman arrested for shooting boyfriend in the back|
|Jan. 9, 2009||Woman receives 4-year sentence for murder of husband|
|Jan. 9, 2009||Woman who murdered husband not charged|
|Jan. 9, 2009||Drunk woman driver kills toddler|
|Jan. 9, 2009||Wife kills husband in booze row|
|Jan. 9, 2009||Woman stabs nephew to death|
|Jan. 9, 2009||Woman stabs husband to death|
|Jan. 9, 2009||Woman accused of murdering her husband|
|Jan. 9, 2009||Woman burns five children, killing one|
|Jan. 6, 2009||Women murders husband by burning his genitals|
Just roughly 2 murders a day (mostly in the US) by women in DV incidents during the past four days. Those are the results of a Google news alert for “she shot”, “she poisoned”, and “she stabbed”, plus what I could find from a couple of men’s rights websites at which such stories were posted. Very few of those stories made the major national or international newspapers. Moreover, those searches I have going do not find stories that do not contain terms other than those I used. The searches will not capture stories with search terms such as, for example, “she allegedly shot” “she allegedly poisoned” “she allegedly stabbed” and many other variations.
How did the redfems ever get away with the maxim “Women good, Men bad”? How could it possibly be that the redfems managed to launch an all-out criminal hate campaign against men by claiming that women are not violent and that all domestic violence is exclusively being committed by men and to keep it going for decades? How and why did any of the media support the redfems‘ assertions that the projection from a few aberrations of violent men should be made to all men, and to sweep the fact of at least an equal extent of violent women under the carpet?
At any rate, I will try to keep on for a while with finding such stories and posting them to dads & things. As of now, it appears that such stories will prove that the number of the annual incidents of women’s serious or fatal violence against husbands and other family members will exceed, by far, the number of such incidents in the official statistics we get to see.
I cannot do an equivalent search and tallying of comparable violence by men. I just don’t have enough time to do that, and an appeal for someone to do the required work for that produced no volunteers so far. Nevertheless, we get to see more than enough of that in the daily news, without ever hearing much about women’s violence.
By the way, The Equal Justice Foundation is one of the best sources of information on violent women and battered husbands.
