What are the effects and consequences of the media treatment of violence against women on feminicide?

Feminicide, is the killing of a woman because she is a women. As the most extreme form of violence against women it is the manifestation of Gender inequality and men’s power over women.

“Gender-related killings of women” is the expression that Rashida Manjoo, United Nations Special Rapporteur (UNSR) on Violence Against Women (VaW), has chosen for her 2012 report to name the most “extreme manifestation of existing forms of VaW”.

The European Parliament resolution on ‘The murder of women (feminicide) in Mexico and Central America and the role of the European Union in fighting the phenomenon’ (2007/2025(INI)), is an instrument that, if properly applied, can serve as an appropriate means to fight against this phenomenon.
