The 23rd February 2024 was yet another sad low point in Austria’s femicide history: Five women and girls were murdered on a single day due to their gender. A total of 26 femicides were recorded in 2023, making Austria the country with the highest rate of femicides in the EU. For their radio feature, Janina Böck-Koroschitz and Elisabeth Weilenmann met many people who deal with the topic, including the survivor Renate Daurer, the psychiatrist Adelheid Kastner and the doctor Peter Klar, who prevented a femicide. They introduce preventive measures, report about activism and show how moral courage can save lives.
