Every day a man in Germany tries to kill his partner or ex-partner, every third day he succeeds. Every third day a femicide happens. A femicide is the murder of a woman because of her gender. Almost every femicide is preceded by domestic violence. In 2019, there were 117 femicides, according to the Federal Criminal Police Office.
