What are the limitations of feminicide databases? What new perspectives are developed by women’s movements? What impact do they have on the State? 

The fifth edition of “Feminicide: A Global Phenomenon” covers topics such as feminicide in different countries, the recent call of the UN-Rapporteur and the absolute criminalization of abortion.

For decades the feminist movement has claimed that women are killed for the fact of being women. The UN call for States to establish a “Femicide Watch” is a huge step in the right direction.
