- We searched English online media outlets for stories of women who were murdered in South Africa between 2018 and 2020 — only 4% of the official cases showed up.
- One in four female homicides reported in the media was a woman killed by her partner at the time.
- Many other murdered women remain nameless with their stories untold.
This is an ode to the women whose names made it into news outlets between 2018 and 2020. It’s also a tribute to those who didn’t – the faceless, nameless women whose stories will remain untold. This project is a collaboration among Bhekisisa, Media Hack and the Canon Collins Trust, which awarded Bhekisisa the 2020 Sylvester Stein Fellowship.
