An average of 133 women and girls are killed every day by an intimate partner or family member, according to UN Women. Like all forms of sexual and gender-based violence against women and girls, femicide is a tragedy that affects every country and territory across the globe. 

Speakers in this webinar will address the societal norms and structures that perpetuate femicide as well as steps for Church and society to seek healing and justice. This includes ways to invest in women’s safety and empowerment to disrupt the cycle of violence, save lives, and contribute to gender equality and sustainable development.
