Violence, Women, and Guns: The State of Female Homicide in the World

The APSTA Peacekeeping This Month is pleased to resume its online journal discourse and share with our readership and wider audience a Small Arms Survey report on Violence, Women and Guns: The State of Female Homicide in the World.

On the International Day on the Elimination of Violence Against Women that fell on 25 November 2015, the Small Arms Survey “called attention to the lethal and pervasive effects of gender-based violence, following the call of Ms. Dubravka Šimonović Special Rapporteur on violence against women for the creation of a Femicide Watch”.
