In a recent interview on GB News, Julie Bindel challenged the contention made by her interviewer, Philip Davies MP, that official statistics show that women are more likely to be abused by same-sex partners than opposite-sex partners. Our thanks to William Collins, author of The Empathy Gap: Male Disadvantages and the Mechanisms of Their Neglect (2019) – the paperback is selling on Amazon for £25.00, the ebook edition just £4.32 – who has provided us with a link to the relevant official statistics.
The evidence is contained in an Office for National Statistics report (click on the 2020 dataset) which has data from the Crime Survey of England and Wales report covering the 12 months to the end of March 2020. It’s in the report’s Excel file, specifically here in Table 6, rows 94, 95. Women are equally likely (0.5%) to have been assaulted sexually by female and male partners (column P). Cells G94 and G95 shows that a woman is almost twice as likely to have been abused (all forms, collectively) by a female partner (10.1%) than a male partner (5.3%).
