27 women murdered in Turkey in June

KCDP said that 27 women have been murdered in Turkey in the month of June.

The ‘We Will Stop Femicide Platform’ (KCDP) published its report for the month of June. According to the report, 27 women have been murdered by men in Turkey last month. Highlighting the increasingly ongoing femicide on daily basis, the platform also reported increasing violence against women and abuse against children.

The report said that the cause of death was not clarified in the 11 of the total 27 cases, while two women were killed for alleged economic issues and 14 were murdered for wanting to make decisions on their own lives.

The KCDP report called for the authorities to shed light on the killing of women and to impose dissuasive punishments on murderers.
