Global Study on Homicide - Gender-related killing of women and girls

27.11.2018 / Created by (EMWF)

This study gives an overview of the scope of gender-related killing of women and girls. It provides in-depth analysis of killings perpetrated within the family sphere and examines forms of gender-related killings perpetrated outside the family sphere, such as the killing of women in conflict and the killing of female sex workers. The study explores the scale of intimate partner/family-related killings of women and girls, and describes different forms of gender-related killings of women. It also looks at the characteristics of the perpetrators of intimate partner killings, the link between lethal and non-lethal violence against women, and the criminal justice response. The data presented in this study are based on homicide statistics produced by national statistical systems in which the relationship between the victim and perpetrator or the motive is reported.
