Infographic | A Global Look at Femicide

Femicide is the most extreme form of gender-based violence: the killing of a woman because of her gender. Globally, 137 women and girls are killed by a family member or intimate partner every single day. The result is more than 50,000 femicides each year. From November 25th to December 10th, 2021, the 16 Days of Activism campaign focuses on femicide.
