25 women killed in Turkey in November, according to We Will Stop Femicide Platform

ANKARA — In its November report, the We Will Stop Femicide platform stated that 25 women were killed in Turkey, including 21 women who were suspiciously murdered. The motives for the murders included attempts to divorce, refusal to reconcile, refusal to marry, refusal to establish a relationship, and economic reasons.

The report added that, “if the perpetrators and motives were not identified, fair trials were not conducted, and killers not punished, violence against women will continue to increase.”

In a previous report by the Union of Women’s Societies, it was found that about 200 women in Turkey were killed after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s decision to withdraw from the Istanbul Convention last March.
