However, while 2.3 million women were the victims of violent crime as a result of non-intimate crimes (i.e. relatives, neighbors, strangers), over 3.3 million men were victims.
Thus, both groups are almost equally affected by violent crime: 3.1 million females and 3.5 million (indeed, men were often victimized more than women!).
Regardless of these unfortunate statistics, the problem of any violent crime isn't nearly as bad as the media and government portrays. In a country of almost 320 million, about 6.6 million are victims of violent crime. That's only about 1.5% of the population. Just think about that.
