The Washington Post is at it again (Washington Post, 11/26/18). In a bid to further erode the institution of the family, the WaPo offers an article entitled “UN Finds Deadliest Place for Women is Their Home.” The only problem with that headline is that the UN did no such thing. Indeed, the intellectual distance between the headline and the UN study on which it pretends to report tends to produce vertigo in the reader. It’s a complete misrepresentation.
What the UN study actually reports on is the number of women and girls killed each year in domestic violence incidents worldwide. That number is about 50,000. This being the UN, the number of men killed in DV incidents goes unmentioned.
