Femicide - the killing of women and girls specifically because of their gender - was until recently included in the broader category of homicide, obscuring the particulars of this heinous phenomenon. However, the majority of murders of women are perpetrated by men whom they know from family ties, or are the result of intimate partner violence and so-called honor killings. This book is the first to hone in on the horror of femicide in Europe. The authors present the findings of a four-year project that explored the various aspects of femicide in great depth. Written by leading international scholars with an interdisciplinary perspective, it looks at the prevention programs and comparative quantitative and qualitative data collection, as well as the impact of culture. It proposes the establishment of an European Observatory on Femicide as a new direction for the future, showing the benefits of cross-national collaboration that is united by the common goal of preventing further murders of women and girls.
