Why women are beaten and killed : sociological predictors of femicide
The higher women climb in society, the more likely a woman will become a victim of fatal violence against (femicide). This study explores the patterns of femicide in medium and large U.S. cities through the examination of macro-structural inequalities of race, gender, and poverty, which contribute to femicide rates.
