2012

The 107, 109, 114, 118, 119, 120, 121 …. 128 UK women killed through male violence in 2012

By 31st December 2012, I’d counted and named 107 women. 107 women UK women killed in 365 days, making one woman killed through suspected male violence every 3.7 days.

What I hadn’t really expected was that even though the year had ended, the list would continue to grow.  nia, the organisation I work for joined One Billion Rising on 14th February 2013.  We released a balloon for every UK woman killed in 2012.  While we were planning the event, 107 women became 109.

By the end of July 2012, the 109 UK women killed through suspected male violence had become 114, then 118, updates reflecting the killings of women that I hadn’t known about or details emerging at trials that had not previously been in the public domain.

In October 2013, I updated to include Carole Waugh and then later Louise Evans;  in March 2014, I added Sally Ann Harrison.  By May 2014, I’d added Betty Yates, Jenny Methven, Yong Li Qui, Patricia Seddon and Eleftheria Demetriou.

In August 2014, I added Eileen Callaghan, 76, who had been strangled to death and beaten with a hammer by her 80 year-old husband, Clement Callagham. on 4th August 2012.

In July 2015 I added Emma Winnall, 93, who died on 29 May, a month after being attacked, her killer has not been found and Hilary Milner who was killed by her husband.

128  UK women killed through male violence in 2012.  One dead woman every 2.85 days.

  1. I stumbled across this through a guardian article. I knew Amelia Arnold, she was a friend of mine. I suppose I was hoping she’d be on this list and now I’ve seen her name I’m glad it’s been recognised. Thankyou for this. These women deserve to be remembered and respected
