The concept of Feminicidio was developed in Latin America by ethnologa and anthropologa Marcela Lagarde, specifically for the case of women killed in Ciudad Juárez (Mexico). The term has been extended in other countries and in Colombia the aim of the reform of the Criminal Code (Law 1257 of 2008) is to protect women against such circumstances. This text aims to make a sketch and make it known as a fact.
