  • Across the EU countries
  • one-fifth to one-quarter of all women have experienced physical violence at
  • least once during their adult lives
  • the majority of such violent acts are carried out by men in their immediate

(Hagemann-White, Carol: Combating violence against women; Stocktaking study on the measures and actions taken in Council

of Europe member states, Council of Europe, Equality Division, Directorate General of Human Rights, Strasbourg: 2006, p 7.)

Femicide is mostly the tragical end of a long violent relation. There are often precursing signs and issues which are not taken serious and go untreated.

55 women were killed by their partner in Spain in 2009.

27 women were murdered by their partner in Spain until 18.05.2010.
