Information on Women & Firearms Violence

When Men Murder Women

To educate the public and policymakers about the unique role firearms play in domestic violence, each year since 1998 the VPC has published When Men Murder Women, which details state-by-state the circumstances of all reported homicides of women by men in single victim-single offender incidents. Released each year for Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October, the studies are used by state and local activists to educate the public on the realities of domestic violence, as well as effective solutions to protect women and children from batterers.
