The South American country suffered 300 femicides and related deaths of women and girls and seven trans/vesticides between November 25, 2021 and 23 of this month, when there are two days left to commemorate the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.

Like every year since 1981, this day seeks to make visible the problem of male violence, where the necessary work for its eradication is put on the agenda.

In addition, the report published by this entity registered 17 men – between adults and children – murdered for their relationship with women victims of gender violence.

In this sense, the study reveals that 338 sons and daughters were left without a mother, where 64% are minors, and only in 58 cases the victim was able to file the complaint previously.

Likewise, 12 of these feminicides had some precautionary preventive measure issued, 16 of them were part of a security force and 46 committed suicide after committing the act.

The data also reveals that four women who were victims were from indigenous peoples, eight of them allegedly practiced prostitution or suffered human trafficking and ten were pregnant, while 20 were migrants and 22 had signs of sexual abuse.

In most cases (57%) they were murdered in their own homes and in just over half (52%) the aggressors were partners or ex-partners of the victim, while 99 femicides were perpetrated with firearms.

The House of Meeting reaffirms in a statement that this report “are not just numbers, behind each murdered woman there are daughters and sons, families, friends, affections and projects that they will not be able to carry out.”

“This is why we insist on demanding protection for those who are in a situation of violence and we consider it essential to work on prevention,” added to the document.

In this regard, the civil association emphasized reinforcing education, training and visibility of sexist violence in order to suppress macho behaviors and stereotypes imposed by society.

Finally, the numbers report that Buenos Aires (98), Santa Fe (62), Córdoba (28) and Chaco (15) are the provinces with the most femicides in Argentina and that also correspond to the most populated districts of the country.
