According to the UN definition, a feminicide is: "the murder of a woman because she is a woman", that is to say the murder of a woman for her condition as a woman. Everyday women & girls in Iran are killed by their own family members. Murderers justify their crimes, citing excuses ranging from anger to “honor.”Many deaths are unreported or forgiven in the courts. Many victims remain nameless. This must end. Join us to say no to femicide.
