In 2022, the number of women and girls murdered worldwide reached its highest level in 20 years, with around 89,000 deliberately killed. More than half of these murders were committed by family members (45,000 out of 81,000), according to UN Women, the agency dedicated to gender equality and women’s empowerment, and UNODC, the UN drugs and crime agency. In comparison, 11% of homicides against men were perpetrated in the private sphere. What are the causes of feminicide, and what can be done to put an end to it? Personalities gathered at the Geneva Press Club will try to answer these questions.
