Woman Killing: Intimate Femicide in Ontario, 1974-1994

Research article about numbers and trends in femicide in Ontario during the past 20 years
publication date: 
Sep 10, 1999

This paper reviews major findings from our research on women killed by their intimate partners in Ontario. Between 1974 and 1994, killings by intimate partners accounted for between 63% and 76% of all women killed in Ontario. We document trends in intimate femicide, characteristics of victims and offenders, circumstances of the killings, and criminal justice responses to offenders. We also discuss the gender-specific nature of intimate femicides and identify ways in which intimate partner killings by males and females are distinctly different.
