You're just gonna trust an "expert"?? As if 100 years of philosophy of science don't thoroughly deconstruct the notion that a theory can be "confirmed"??

there's a conversation happening in UK on twitter about a woman who it seems was murdered at the weekend, how to mark her passing, RIP

killings of women by people known to them, like it sounds like Gabby P was, are a lot more common that women killed by strangers, like Sarah Everard was in UK, but a lot of the campaigning seems to connect women's safety to being able to walk around the streets freely, rather than domestic violence :(

the stats on that wikipedia page (sort by Female & Rate) are grim. There are a lot of places with higher rates of femicide than Mexico

According to the data given by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, worldwide, 78.7% of homicide victims are male, and in 193 of the 202 listed countries or regions, males were more likely to be killed than females

Check your outdated "chivalry" Sufi, caring extra about women is misogynistic by definition.
tragically it seems like Gabby loses a lot of sympathy votes by being insta-friendly
Just one image of the murdered woman in S London was released so far - a demure graduation pic

Worldwide homicide statistics by gender​

Main article: Homicide statistics by gender

According to the data given by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, worldwide, 78.7% of homicide victims are male, and in 193 of the 202 listed countries or regions, males were more likely to be killed than females. In two, the ratio was 50:50 (Switzerland and British Virgin Islands), and in the remaining 7; Tonga, Iceland, Japan, New Zealand, Republic of Korea, Latvia and Hong Kong, females were more likely to be victims of homicides compared to males.[62] A 2013 global study on homicide by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime found that males accounted for about 95 percent of all convicted homicide perpetrators worldwide.[63] Also, according to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, the percent of victims killed by their spouses or ex-spouses in 2011 were 77.4 percent women and 22.6 percent men in selected countries across Europe.[64]

Being not a gender essentialist means that some vague amorphous body of people called "men" who commit homicides has nothing to do with the vague amorphous body of people called "men" who are the victims of homicide. They're different people they're not "the same"

not remotely true

Gabby GOT sympathy votes by being insta-friendly and there was a reaction to this, in which a vocal minority was upset

But you can't confuse the correction to a trend with a trend. The trend is sympathy. The correction is suspicion of that sympathy.

Thousands of men and women die every day. There were probably a half dozen American women killed in domestic violence disputes yesterday alone. Why is she on the news to begin with?

Really embarrassing that I have to explain to a buncha board-boomers how not to be gender essentialists, and why pretty white women get more love from the "fake news" MSM than an overweight, unattractive POC who strips for money.
