The bill is now being examined by the Chamber of Deputies.

The Italian Senate approved this Thursday (24) the creation of a parliamentary commission of inquiry into feminicide and other forms of gender-based violence.




The text received 139 votes in favor and none against and is now sent to the Chamber of Deputies, where it should meet no resistance.

“It’s a strong signal in a battle that needs everyone on the same side,” said centrist Mara Carfagna.

The president of the Senate, Ignazio La Russa, has already reiterated that feminicide is “essentially a matter of men”, since more than half of the women murdered in Italy are victims of former or current partners, according to the National Institute of Statistics (Istat).
