Women Count US
Speaking out against violence against women and girls by keeping a femicide database
Violence against women and girls is a preventable public health crisis. Femicide, domestic violence and sexual assault are intolerable violations of the basic worth, dignity and human rights of women and girls in the United States and the world.

Why This Work Matters
Rebecca Solnit (writer, historian, activist)
"Before you can treat a disease you have to diagnose it. Violence against women is an epidemic that takes four lives a day in the USA and leaves millions living in terror or facing the torture of rape, beatings, stalkings, and abuse. Even those of us who are not direct victims are impacted by living in a world where such gender violence is both common and normalized or trivialized, where any woman may be harmed because she is a woman. This is a major force preventing women from being free and equal. Women Count USA provides a crucial service in documenting the width and breadth of this forever-overlooked crisis and showing the faces and sharing the stories of many of the murder victims."
