Too late for edit, but even if the number of incidents are the same for both genders, it may not necessarily mean that the risk is the same. If 10 men and women are assaulted walking down the street, we would need to know how how many men and women total were in that situation. If 100 men and 100 women were on the street, then their risk is the same. But if there are 100 men and 50 women who walk on the street, then the risk for a woman is double that of a man.
