The latest Femicide Census report, compiled by Women’s Aid, reveals that 113 women were killed by men in England, Wales and Northern Ireland in 2016. Nine in ten women killed that year were killed by someone they knew. It forms part of a larger website which lists and gathers statistics on over 1,000 women killed by men in England and Wales since 2009. It was developed by Karen Ingala Smith and Women’s Aid as a result of lack of this information on national statistics sources.
