We Count Femicide Because is a new initiative of Building a Bigger Wave Ontario Network (BBW) and OAITH to call attention to and address Femicide rates in Ontario.  

Femicide is described as the intentional killing of women, children and other gender-diverse individuals, by men. 

We Count Femicide Because will raise a public alarm every time a femicide occurs in Ontario. We want to draw attention to the critical need for investments in prevention and to engage leaders in communities and at all levels of government in dialogue focused on the collective work needed to prevent femicide.
