Quotes

Quote taken from the Destroy the Joint Facebook page, clarifying that they do not just record deaths from domestic violence:

Please note: We do not confine our count to only deaths attributed as domestic or family violence, as we believe all these violent deaths targeted against women are the result of societal misogyny. Most of these cases are subject to court proceedings but we do know that in at least 75 per cent of the cases reported so far this year, the victim knew her alleged killer. We also include women killed by other women (lateral violence).[1]
