Femicide is the most extreme form of gender-based violence: the killing of a woman because of her gender. Globally, 137 women and girls are killed by a family member or intimate partner every single day. The result is more than 50,000 femicides each year. From November 25th to December 10th, 2021, the 16 Days of Activism campaign focuses on femicide.

Thanks, comrade, I didn’t know about the 16 Days of Activism. There were massive protests on the 25th, I even attended one. The good news is, our current government has responded to public outcry by pushing forward laws to protect women. The bad news is, sexism and anti-feminism is growing at an alarming rate here, so the next government will probably reverse everything… I hate this place.

First time I’ve heard that sexism and anti-feminism were on the rise there. Sorry to hear.

The percentage of young men who think gender-related violence is not real has doubled in the last four years, it’s over 20% now. Plus a similar share believe feminism is detrimental to society.

Does anyone know if there are graphics about killing men because they are men, in the same way that women are killed because they are women?
