Women's Empowerment: Founders Pledge report and recommendations

Hi - am a little late to your comment, but unsure that the other replies address this. Though 80% of homicide victims are male, this doesn't mean anything like 80% of men experience homicide. However 35% of women experience intimate partner violence or sexual violence. It seems to me like the homicide statistic you give doesn't take the scale of homicide into account, which is much smaller than 35% of the male population. I would accept your point that the comparable rate for intimate partner violence of any kind for men isn't given, which while my prior is that this is lower isn't easily evidenced as you point out.
