#countingdeadwomen began in 2012 in the UK when Karen Ingala Smith just started counting,
“and once I’d started, I couldn’t stop. Since then, I’ve counted over 366 women killed through suspected male violence…. I want us to stop seeing the killings of women by men as isolated incidents, to put them together and to see the connections and patterns”. Karen Ingala Smith

“When we remember the deaths of women from male violence, we must remember that most deaths of the prostituted go unrecorded and therefore unreported. It is thought that prostituted women are about 40 times more likely to die a violent death than women of similar age and background. Many prostituted women die before the age of 27, far too many. Every exited woman lives with knowing prostituted women who have just disappeared or been murdered, that is what gives us the will to fight for abolition.” Rebecca Mott
