Gender-based violence series

Policy Study

20/11/2020

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.

FEPS and Fondation Jean-Jaurès join forces to fight for the elimination of sexist and sexual violence on the occasion of the international day for the elimination of violence against women.
