Yes, those stats are quite suspect. I followed the link in the column, which then had other links to the studies in question. The methodology for some of the data collection would be considered one of the most unreliable means. For a more detailed analysis, see anything by Christina Hoff Summers, particularly "Who Stole Feminism?" In it you will finds a handy debunking of many oft-reapeated myths, such as the common 1 in 4 rape statistic, the assertion that domestic violence rises on Superbowl Sunday, and the pay inequity fable. That said, Bob Beckel is still a hack.
