Brasilia, Sep 16 (Prensa Latina) The number of women murdered in Brazil rose to 1,890 during the first semester, an increase of two percent compared to the same period in 2019, according to a survey by the G1 news portal published today .
Rondonia (north) appears as the state with the highest number of homicides of women with 255 percent, which translates into 4.4 per 100,000 inhabitants.
Also in the north, Acre has the highest rate of Femicides (167 percent): 1.8 per 100,000.
Cases of bodily injury in the context of domestic violence decreased by 11 percent and violations and transgressions against vulnerable persons also decreased to 21 and 20 percent, respectively.
G1 drew attention that the rise in the number of deaths occurred, even during the Covid-19 pandemic, which caused states to adopt measures of social isolation. In other words, there was a high level of violence even with fewer people on the streets.
The decrease in the number of personal injuries and rapes, in turn, is impressive, as an increase was expected with confinement.  Experts assure that it is an under-registration, that is, fewer complaints were filed due to the difficulties imposed by the pandemic.
The survey is part of the Violence Monitor, an association of G1 with the Nucleus of Studies of the Violence from the University of Sao Paulo and the Brazilian Public Security Forum.
