Alaska leading the way in femicide!

According to a new report by the Violence Policy Center, Alaska ranks as #1 for the rate at which women are murdered by men.

The appalling report, called "When Men Murder Women," details national and state-by-state data about female homicide.

Trailing behind Alaska (with a rate of 2.83 women killed per 100,000) are New Mexico and Wyoming (tied for second place), Lousiana with third place and Navada at number four.

Whoo hoo! Celebration time! Just kidding. It's yet another sad reminder -- just in time for October (Domestic Violence Month) that life ain't getting any simpler or safer for many women around the country.
