For the past few years El Salvador has been listed among the world’s deadliest countries for women, and ranks first in Latin America.
-- I don’t want to go back to El Salvador. I felt afraid as a woman there more than in any other country in Latin America. I realized I had entered hostile territory while chatting with the taxi driver who picked me up at the airport, the first Salvadoran man I met. He told me he had a baby, a little darling called J. J., and showed me a photo. When I asked him if he’d like more children, he said yes, but only boys.
“War is an inherently patriarchal activity, and rape is one of the most extreme expressions of the patriarchal drive toward masculine domination

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.

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.
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
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.
