Men are NOT the leading cause of injury to women: the leading causes are traffic, falls, and intentional self-harm

If you google “leading cause of injury to women”, you will immediately get a whole slew of links to domestic violence websites, where the “fact” that men are the leading cause of injury to women is repeated endlessly.

 

But it’s not true.

 

The leading cause of injury to women GLOBALLY is traffic. Yeah, cars are way more dangerous than men. The second leading cause of injury is a fall. Ladders are more dangerous than men.

Third place? "Intentional self-harm." Via Louis C.K. says men are the number one threat to women. That’s not even close to being true, so why say it? | judgybitch.
