Death at Home by Gabrielle Merite

The Collectif de Recensement des Féminicides Conjugaux en France has been gathering information on femicide in France for more than 3 years. In 2010, Day after day, they built an entire map of every women murdered by the ex or current partner in the country.

In order to tell this 151 women stories, I chose to focus on who they were, and not how they died. I illustrated through data visualization portraits the aspects of their life I could find online, through the Collectif data but also death certificates, facebook tributes, family testimonials and local press articles.

The result is an interactive tribute Death At Home visualizing their stories and global statistics on femicide in France.
