Margot Giacinti, Ph.D. researcher in political science in the École Normale Supérieure of Lyon and temporary lecturer and research assistant in Université Lyon-2, looks back at the history of the concept of femicide in the world and the need to name femicides to better fight against sexual and sexist violence.

This is the first publication of the series that the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS) and the Fondation Jean Jaurès are publishing to join forces on the fight for the elimination of sexist and sexual violence on the occasion of the international day for the elimination of violence against women.
