Gender-Based Violence and Justice in Conflict and Post-Conflict Areas

Article by the former UNSRVAW adapted from the Keynote Address at a Symposium in March 2010
publication date: 
Jul 24, 2011

“War is an inherently patriarchal activity, and rape is one of the most extreme expressions of the patriarchal drive toward masculine domination
over the woman. This patriarchal ideology is further enforced by the aggressive character of the war itself, that is to dominate and control
another nation or people.”

Turkey's deepening tragedy of murdered women | Mail&Guardian

In the first five months of 2017, 173 women were killed across Turkey compared with 137 in the same period of 2016.
publication date: 
Jul 12, 2017
source / author: 

As she did most afternoons, Pinar Unluer was waiting to collect her six-year-old son from his school in Turkey’s Aegean city of Izmir. She was then shot dead in broad daylight only metres away from the school, by a man whose marriage proposal she had rejected. The 29-year-old was among 210 Turkish women killed or forced to commit suicide in 2012 in misogynist attacks by men, according to the women’s rights group We Will Stop Femicide. Since then there has been a chilling increase in the number of women killed, often at the hands of men they know.

Femicide of Women Who Are Older

1 in 5 women murdered in Ontario from 1974 to 2012 was 55 years or older. 67% of older femicide victims were retired.
publication date: 
Mar 22, 2017
source / author: 

This finding demonstrates the substantial number of older women in Ontario who were killed. While the killing of one woman is unacceptable, this statistic reminds us that gender-based violence exists across the life course and that intervention and prevention efforts must target all age groups, including women who are older. Moreover, the “baby boomers” are moving into this demographic and the number of women 55 years and older will represent a larger portion of the population in Ontario.

Punishing femicide: Criminal justice responses to the killing of women over four decades

publication date: 
Mar 9, 2016
source / author: 

The way in which nation states respond to femicide has become the focus of much attention in the past decade. The establishment of specialized police and prosecution units has been recommended and some countries have implemented specific legislation or criminal offences specific to femicide. Part of the challenge in moving beyond these legislative and policy initiatives is the dearth of reliable data that show how states are

Femicide of Older Women

There is a lack of consensus on what age group constitutes “older people”, including older women.
publication date: 
Jan 4, 2017
source / author: 

In Canada, there is no set age at which a person is considered to be a senior; age thresholds may vary depending on a number of factors and range from 55 to 65 years old as a minimum requirement. Despite disagreement in defining seniority, Statistics Canada acknowledges that seniors 65 years and older represent a burgeoning proportion of Canada’s population, comprising 16% of the total population in 2011.i This percentage will continue to rise with the aging population of ‘baby boomers’, resulting in increased concerns about their social, physical, and mental vulnerability.

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.

National Trends in Intimate Partner Homicides Explaining Declines in Canada, 1976 to 2001

Research article that explains the reasons for the decline in domestic homicide in Canada
publication date: 
Jul 9, 2009

In the past decade, research has begun to identify factors that may be contributing to declines in spousal homicide. The authors address two gaps in the Canadian literature: (a) the documentation of trends, including subgroup variations, and (b) the identification of factors that may be associated with declines. Using Statistics Canada data, the authors assess the association of declines with various factors.
