The Femicide Census Report 2020 looks at deaths from 2009-2018.
This report brings together the killings of 1,425 women and girls aged 14 and over and the 1,419 men who ended their lives between 2009 and 2018. The report finds that the numbers of women killed per year, the methods used, the contexts in which women are killed and their relationships with the men who kill them have changed little over the ten-year period. The Femicide Census is not prepared to accept that this is inevitable and that we should merely be grateful that the numbers have stayed the same and not increased. The title of this report is a genuine quote from a woman predicting her own killing. Too many of the women in this report and their loved ones may equally have said, or thought, something similar.
