In Greater Manchester, eight women have been killed since Sarah Everard was murdered last spring.[/font][/size]Among them was a teenager, killed at a holiday park, and a grandmother murdered by her ex-husband with an axe when he found out she was selling their former home.

Three men are now serving life sentences for murdering women.
Another two have been charged with murder, while police are yet to charge suspects in three of the cases.

Metropolitan Police firearms officer, Wayne Couzens, is serving a whole life sentence for the kidnap, rape and murder of 33-year-old
 marketing executive Ms Everard in London, meaning he will never be freed from jail.



Her shocking murder has sparked campaigners to call on government, police forces and councils to take action to tackle violence against women.
The Government has pledged a £45million fund for safer streets that will include installing improved lighting and CCTV.
But stark figures reveal that across the UK at least 80 women have been killed by men, or a man has been identified as the prime suspect, since Ms Everardís murder.

Thatís according to the group Counting Dead Women, a website which tracks female killings in the UK.
Police investigations into the deaths of five of the eight women killed since Sarah Everard was murdered last spring are still ongoing. Whilst it is not conclusive they were killed by men, all of the women killed met untimely deaths.

Terrible figures , however I would wager that figure would at least double if you bring men  into the equation, it all boils down to the police and judiciary not doing their jobs of punishing these offenders before it comes to murder ill guarantee that most of the murderers have form from being teenagers ,

A phone app has been suggested to track movements of women and a body camera :-\


As you say the judiciary should give longer sentences,  perhaps it's the offenders who should be tracked!

It would be very informative if we could break down those statistics into age , ethnicity, and class, and whether these men were employed or not .
