Despite the existence of public policies aimed at preventing violence against women in public space, such as street bullying, work-related or school/academic harassment, the invisibility of femicides committed in this context, known as non-intimate femicide, persists. Despite the legal provision, these are not reflected in criminal investigations, judgments and specific prevention policies. The purpose of this article is to identify the power relationships present in non-intimate femicides and their manifestation in criminal evidence, by analysing the context of violence against women in public space. Based on the examination of international documents on the investigation of femicide, mysoginia is identified in the evidence by signs of naturalisation, internalisation, mastery and submission of women. The exclusion of personal reasons in unintimate femicide shows the existence of misoginia, expressed ambivalently (mix of desire and disregard) towards women who violate their traditional role. Non-intimate femicide must be made visible so that women and girls can be properly prevented and sanctioned and the right to a life free from violence guaranteed to women and girls.
