Belgium, new feminicide law. To be studied
In Europe, male violence is the leading cause of death for women between the ages of 16 and 44. Belgium equips itself with a new law that for the first time legally defines feminicides in order to develop policies based on official statistics. Keeping in mind that violence is a device of male domination
Stop the slaughter of women. This is the meaning of the new 'law on the prevention of and fight against feminicides, gender-based crimes and the violence that precedes them' adopted at first reading in the Council of Ministers on 25 October in Belgium.

Self-ID and the prison system: men in women's prisons. A report from Canada
An Irish newspaper, TheJournal.ie, reports today of a woman arrested in Dublin for possession of violent child pornography. Only at the end of the article does it say, almost incidentally, that it is a man identifying himself as a woman. In countries that allow self-id - self-certification of gender - if a prisoner claims to be a woman he can be transferred to a women's prison. This entails very serious risks for the security and dignity of the women prisoners. This is what happens in [...]
