Considering the number of global femicides that took place I divided this special
in continents and when you click on one of it
a page will open of which that page will focus on different countries that are
schockingly enough as an 'example' and to
different international magazines or broadcasts and if you want to read
more you can click on the link. I am only
human and I
had to make 'at random' choices but I do so
to avoid me going
crazy because it is so hard to accept reality of the atrocities,
but it's there and still I've read a lot of them to be able to give you a as good
as possible insight in
this global atrocity.
Before readers will actually start reading this special I can hear them
'This is a far from my bed show'. Well, maybe or maybe not because, and I'd
really hope it
will never happen but i.e. if it already happened, to your sister, wife, another
relative the more
reason to act! If you already do I apologize and maybe you can contact me at
I however made this special and tribute to
all the victims and their family.
It must be very hard for them.
If you feel like you cannot read further about the GLOBAL FEMICIDES
it is understandable.

rates, 50% are in Latin America, with number one being El Salvador. Also
included in the top 25 are seven European countries, three Asian
countries, and one African country, South Africa.

November 2020 that writes that:
<<UN expert calls for urgent action to end ‘pandemic of femicide and
violence against women’ .
COVID-19 is overshadowing what has become a “pandemic of femicide” and
related gender-based violence against women and girls, said independent

<<Deputy UN chief hails ‘political courage’ of Latin American countries
‘to confront and end femicide’.
A 50 million euro investment aimed at helping to end the scourge of
femicide – where women and girls are killed just because of their gender
– was announced at United Nations Headquarters on Thursday, thanks to
the ‘political courage’ of a group of Latin American countries, said the
UN deputy chief.
Amina Mohammed was speaking at a high-level event to launch the
Spotlight Initiative in Argentina, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and
She described the joint UN-European Union initiative as <a bold and
comprehensive response to the tragedies that we see across the world
every day>, aimed at ending violence against women and girls.
<These five countries have shown the political courage to confront and
end femicide – a crime that claims the lives of 12 women a day, in Latin
America,> said the Deputy Secretary-General.
<Given the pervasive, universal, and entrenched nature of violence
against women and girls, we knew that we would need to combine our
individual efforts if we were to succeed,> she added.
Latin America is home to 14 of the 25 countries with the highest rates
of femicide in the world and an astonishing 98 per cent of
gender-related killings, go unprosecuted.
Ms. Mohammed said that the 50 million Euro investment would help tighten
up laws and policy initiatives to curb unchecked violence against women
and girls, strengthen institutions and promote gender equality overall.
It will also <provide quality services for survivors, and reparations
for victims of violence and their families, producing disaggregated data
