Feminicide/Femicide is the killing of women for being women. It is the most extreme form of violence against women and girls and is perpetrated in both the public and the private sphere, during peace and during war, in Latin America and in Europe.

Five of the 12 countries with the highest rates of feminicide/femicide are in Latin America, whereas in the European Union 28% of women have suffered physical or sexual violence at the hands of their partners from as young as 15 years of age.

CIFCA promotes equality between men and women and advocates for the eradication of discrimination, violence, feminicide/femicide and impunity.
