"Dangerous Trends, Innovative Responses 2007-2008" is  a special report by Women's eNews regarding domestic violence. Despite increasing awareness and responses towards domestic violence through legislation and policy,  homicide rates of intimate partners based on gender have not been equal, the study found.

Statistics provided by the U.S. Justice Department show that the number of female homicide victims have not decreased as much as the number of  male homicides victims.  The editors of Women's eNews explore different  factors that account for the disparity of homicide rates based on gender.
