Counting Dead Women-USA is a website dedicated to recording the deaths of women at the hands of men in the United States of America. These deaths are considered ‘isolated incidents’, with no ramifications or risk for the general public. We hold that these deaths are not isolated, they are symptoms of a society which embraces male supremacy and encourages the use violence against women in order to oppress women and maintain male dominance in all facets of public and private life.
Counting Dead Women-USA is an initiative undertaken by members of Women’s Liberation Front http://womensliberationfront.org/ . WoLF is a radical feminist organization dedicated to the total liberation of women. We fight to end male violence, abolish prostitution and pornography, regain reproductive sovereignty, and ultimately dismantle the gender-caste system.
We credit Karen Ingala Smith https://kareningalasmith.com/counting-dead-women/2014-2/ with setting the direction of our efforts, and continuing to be both an inspiration for us and a voice for women who have been silenced by men.
