Fact-check by Pagella Politica (Italy)
Laura Boldrini is the President of the Italian Chamber of Deputies and frequently comments on gender-related issues.

That said the homicide rates for men has fallen significantly since the 1990s (it was at or above 4 per 100 000 people twenty years ago), while it has remained essentially unchanged for women. The statement is true.
