Missing and Murdered: Addressing Femicide and Sexual and Gender-based Violence in our Global Context

25 November - 02 December 2021

Join us in two online meetings addressing the shadow pandemic of femicide and sexual and gender-based violence. Statistics gathered by the UN in 2017 indicated that 87,000 women were killed because of their gender. Of those murders, 58 percent – 137 women each day - were killed by a member of their own family or intimate partner. The onset of Covid-19 has exacerbated the violence, so much so, that by September 2020, 121 countries instituted and adopted new measures to provide support and/or care for women survivors of violence as part of their Covid-19 response plans.
