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.

Of those murders, 58 percent – 137 women each day - were killed by a member of their own family or intimate partner.
