#Femicide, or the killing of women due to their gender, is an alarming problem across Europe. In Spain alone, an average of 70 women are killed every year due to sexist motives—a number that has increased exponentially in the past decade. In France and Germany, similarly high numbers of femicides have been recorded in recent years. This troubling phenomenon is indicative of a deeper social problem: the pervasive culture of misogyny which still exists in many countries across Europe today.

Gender-related violence is a systemic issue that affects all aspects of society: from laws and policies that fail to protect victims to widespread economic inequalities and discrimination in the workplace. In many European countries, these issues create a climate where violence against women goes unpunished and femicides become tragically frequent occurrences.

The new documentary “Europe’s Femicide Problem” delves into this issue with an eye-opening look at Spain, France and Germany. The film follows the stories of three victims whose lives were taken too soon by male aggressors—and examines how their deaths highlight a larger epidemic of gender-based violence sweeping through Europe. Through detailed analysis and gripping interviews with survivors and experts on the subject, viewers get a firsthand look at this urgent problem from multiple angles.

This documentary is essential viewing for anyone who wants to understand the scope of femicide in Europe today—and its implications for our societies as a whole. By shining a light on this dark issue, it raises awareness about gender inequality while underscoring the need for change both at home and abroad. Viewers will be moved by its compelling content—and inspired to take action against gender-based violence wherever they can.

We must do more than just watch this documentary; we must use it as an opportunity to challenge our own beliefs and behaviors when it comes to gender relations within our communities. We can no longer ignore this urgent issue; together we must find ways to eliminate prejudice and recognize the value that all members of society have regardless of their gender identity or expression. Only then can we successfully combat femicide in Europe and ensure that no woman ever falls victim to such senseless acts again.
