Femicide is a growing problem in Turkey, especially after the country officially quit the Istanbul Convention in July last year.

According to the 2021 Annual Data Report announced by the ‘We Will Stop Femicide Platform’, 280 women were killed by men in 2021, while 217 women were found dead in suspicious circumstances.

The ‘Monument Counter’, a digital memorial for women killed by violence in the country and updated daily, 194 femicides have taken place in Turkey so far this year.
