Femicide, A Global Issue that Demands Action, Volume 7: Establishing a Femicide Watch in Every Country

The latest Femicide Report presented at the 2017 Crime Commission meeting on national Femicide Watches and data collection
publication date: 
May 23, 2017
source / author: 

Unless there is accurate and comparable data collection on a given crime, there will be no proper understanding of it and no effective strategy with which to combat it. Having clear data helps law makers and government officials win the public’s support for tackling it through targeted prevention and investigation resources. Femicide has been defined as murder of a woman by an intimate partner or family members and the targeting of women by criminal gangs or as a weapon of war. It has been universally recognised as a crime.
