The 2023 annual Data Against Feminicide event opened a space for reflection and dialogue on both the strategic uses and the limitations of data in the fight against feminicide. Recognizing its significance, the goal was to explore the intersection of combating femicide and the relevance of data within this domain. We asked: What types of data are currently being collected? To what extent might the collection of feminicide data invisibilize other forms of violence? Does the collection of data take away scarce resources from prevention and support programs? How much data do we need to take action?
