femicidereport2 eng cover''The Canadian Femicide Observatory for Justice and Accountability (CFOJA) is the sole Canadian initiative responding to the United Nations call to establish femicide observatories to more compreensively and accurately document gender-related killings of women and girls or 'femicide'. The CFOJA mandate is to establish a visible and national focus on femicide in Canada by (1) documenting femicides as they occur in Canada; and (2) monitoring state, legal and social responses to these killings. This is the CFOJA's second annual #CallItFemicide report, focusing on women and girls killed by violence in Canada from January 1 to November 30, 2019.
