This study focuses on Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) and how it escalates into femicide. 275 women killed in Turin, between 1970 and 2016, by 260 males, with whom they were involved in a more or less intimate relationship comprise the sample of this study. The findings show that 77.9% of the women were killed by a man they knew, and that escalation into femicide more likely featured within an intimate and affective relationship between victims and perpetrators, rather than within an acquaintance relationship. IPV is often the result of a destructive relationship between two people who cannot live together any longer, but who are also incapable of putting an end to the relationship. Further studies are necessary to explore what could be done - how, when, and with whom – in order to prevent contentious and destructive relationships from becoming a stepping-stone to femicide.

Abstract

This study focuses on Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) and how it escalates into femicide. 275 women killed in Turin, between 1970 and 2016, by 260 males, with whom they were involved in a more or less intimate relationship comprise the sample of this study. The findings show that 77.9% of the women were killed by a man they knew, and that escalation into femicide more likely featured within an intimate and affective relationship between victims and perpetrators, rather than within an acquaintance relationship. IPV is often the result of a destructive relationship between two people who cannot live together any longer, but who are also incapable of putting an end to the relationship. Further studies are necessary to explore what could be done - how, when, and with whom – in order to prevent contentious and destructive relationships from becoming a stepping-stone to femicide.
