‘South Africa has one of the highest murder rates in the world. Within that, we also have a femicide rate that is five to six times the world average.’

Why is South Africa’s femicide rate so high? Where did our violence against women start? What steps can we take to start solving these issues?

Nechama Brodie starts answering these questions by documenting and analysing narratives and stories the media crafted about the murders of women, in order to compare reporting on femicide with the reality of femicide. She discusses how media coverage might have influenced public understanding of this type of violence. What emerges is a much broader picture of a continuum of violence against women. She covers: femicide vs homicide, intimate partner homicide, femicidesuicide, rape and femicide, cops who kill, farm murders, lesbian and trans hate crimes, race and femicide and more.
