Gloria Steinem: 'The Home in Our Country Is Single Most Dangerous Place for a Woman By Penny Starr October 12, 2012
(CNSNews.com) Speaking at an event to mark the 40th anniversary of Ms. Magazine, co-founder and feminist activist Gloria Steinem said that because of domestic violence the home in our country is the single most dangerous place for a woman and that ending domestic violence is the key to world peace.
We can understand, you know, where it is we wish to go and also reveal more clearly where it is we are now, Steinem said at the National Press Club on Thursday.
For instance, domestic violence, or original violence, has diminished somewhat, but it is true right now that if you added up all the women murdered by their husbands or boyfriends in this country since 9/11 and then took all the people killed in 9/11, all the Americans killed in Iraq and in Afghanistan, there are more women who have been murdered by their husbands and boyfriends than were collectively killed in those situations, she said.
Its also still true that the average prison sentence for a partner, a male partner who kills his female partner, is less than for a woman who kills in self-dense in the home, Steinem said.
Its still true that the home in our country is the single most dangerous place for a woman not the street, Steinem said.
The number of people killed by terrorists in the United States on Sept. 11, 2001 was 2,977. The number of troops killed in Afghanistan total 2,125 and 4,475 in Iraq, according to the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America. That would bring the total for the attack and the two wars to 9,577 deaths.

Go live with the Taliban.......
Actually it is the safest place in the country but she would never know.
Pray for America
And what about helpless babies?
What’s a safer place Gloria, the home for women or Planned Parenthood for a fetus?
Spousal abuse(which goes both ways) is a problem, but Ms Steinem (who married not long ago) is ham-handedly branding the home as a dangerous place. Massive numbers of women find refuge, love and safety in the home.
according to some comedic themes on the internet, you’re fine if you stay in the kitchen.
And the bedroom as long as she is “the mood” ;)
Gloria is proof positive stupid people are indeed safe in america.
I'm sorry Gloria S. and her abused sisters have not known bliss in their homes.
Really, I am sorry.
And, I am grateful for the sanctuary of our home. I wish all could have the same.
Actually WATER is the single most dangerous substance in the world. Every criminal drank water shortly before committing a crime. RIGHT GLORIA. That’s LIBERAL LOGIC
I see, Gloria, you are still an idiot at 78 and never got help with your hatred of men.
In China they abort baby girls - so bring your fight there. America has been too good to you, b*tch!
Well, obviously, go move in with Barack and Michelle, or, uh, go get beat up by some bull dyke.
The Womb in our country is the single most dangerous place for a woman.
Yes,ask Lara Logan or the young girl in Pakistan with a bullet in her head!
Gloria, everyone who supports the right to kill innocent lives invites the spirit of death to dwell in them. No wonder you feel unsafe.
May you know the truth and the truth will set you free.
To Gloria - Thanks for speaking out on the issue of abused women. Your statisics are probably low due to the fact that many women feel such shame in situations like that, and are reluctant to speak out or live in denial.
there’s no place like home..........
Go home, Gloria.
