Cape Town | The South African Medical Research Council (SAMRC), through its Gender and Health Research Unit (GHRU), will commence its third National Femicide Study at the beginning of the month of October this year. The Unit has been calling for support to repeat this study as it will provide valuable data on whether we have an increase in femicide in the country. The recent reports of heightened killing of women and girl children over the past month makes this study even more critical.
