“We are seeing a growing number of femicide in Brazil and we are very concerned because this issue is not showing up and women are increasingly being violated, insulted, and being killed”, points out the feminist, cultural producer and activist in the Feminist Levant , Rita Andrade.

The activity is also motivated by the femicide of Cilma da Cruz Galvão, on October 3rd. Cilma was the director of Policies for Women and the Fight against Racism at the Union of Outsourced Services (Sindiservices-DF) and entered the statistics as the 18th female victim of femicide in the Federal District, in 2021.

“Cilma’s femicide was a drop in a sea of ​​pain, suffering and indignation that we have been experiencing. We know that the pandemic has exposed social inequalities in Brazil and we know that at the end is the woman, the black woman, who suffers the greatest impacts of this whole situation”, highlights Rita Andrade.

::Femicide: indignation is not enough::

According to the Public Security Secretariat of the Federal District (SSP-DF), “in the first nine months of this year, there were 17 occurrences of femicide throughout the DF”. The numbers, available on the Secretariat’s website, indicate that there was an increase in relation to crimes committed in the first half of 2020 compared to the same period in 2021.

“We are going to the streets with protection, with a mask, with detachment to say a stop against Jair Bolsonaro’s death policy, which are genocidal policies that have been killing black people, the LGBTQIA+ population and women”, concludes Rita Andrade.
