According to Flora Tristán, between the months of January and October, 114 femicides were registered in the country

Femicide is the worst form of violence against women because it is an irreparable assault. In Peru, in 2021 alone, 114 cases of femicide were registered between the months of January and October, of which 14% were girls and adolescents.

CARETAS spoke with Liz Meléndez, director of the Flora Tristán Peruvian Women’s Center, who pointed out that “in 2020 there were 131 cases, which makes us suppose that we will end 2021 with a similar figure.”

Another aspect that generates concern is the disappearance of women. «In 2020, more than 18,000 cases of missing persons were registered, of which 63% were women and 62% were girls and adolescents between the ages of 12 and 17. So far from 2021 to September there have been more than 4,400 disappearances of women, girls and adolescents, ”he explained.

On the Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, the specialist says that it is important that the State begins to link disappearances with violence against women. Learn about more issues around women in the following interview:
