This map shows the ratio of male murder victims for most of the world's countries and thus implicitly also the female victims ratio for the latest year with data available. Blue countries have higher male victim rates and red countries higher female victim rates. Yellow countries are more or less balanced.
The Percentage of male and female homicide victims XLSX-dataset comes from the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime. One point worth noting is that Iceland had one murder in 2012 and on average 78% male victims between 2006-2012 according to this comment on Reddit.
