The Observatory of Murdered Women (OMA), founded in 2004, is an initiative of the feminist association UMAR- União de Mulheres Alternativa e Resposta. Every year the OMA presents officially to governmental entities, media and civil society a study with the results of murdered women in the former year. This report reveals the data from 2008, where 46 women were murdered by their husbands, partners or ex-partners. The document also shows the number of attempted murders, the victims’ ages, the regions with more cases and the typology of the aggressors.
