Description

The killing of a woman by her partner is the most extreme consequence of intimate partner violence. Monitoring such violence provides insights on the impact of laws, policies and programs for gender-based violence prevention. This research brief compares the results of two South African national studies that described prevalence and patterns of female homicide and intimate femicide in 1999 and 2009.
