From February 26 until March 20 the exhibition Femicide can be seen in the Atrium of the City Hall. Every 8 days, a woman is murdered in the Netherlands, often by her (ex-)partner, and almost always because she decides to end the relationship. 6 out of 10 victims of femicide are killed by their (ex-)partners. Women are disproportionately more likely to be killed by their (ex-)partners or a family member than men. The Femicide exhibition alerts, informs, and gives a face to victims of fatal (ex-)partner violence against women and a voice to their loved ones.

Stichting Open Mind (, the municipality of The Hague, and the survivors of femicide victims are joining forces to bring attention to the warning signs of toxic relationships, inform the general public, and provide tips from the survivors to victims, bystanders, professionals, and society. With this exhibition, we hope to warn women in violent relationships, motivate them to seek the right help, and reduce the number of femicide victims.

The exhibition is also developed as an outdoor exhibition. From February 20 to March 12, it will be on display in Escamp. During the Haagse Vrouwendagen (the Hague Women’s Days), the exhibition will also be featured in the Atrium. For more information about the Haagse Vrouwendagen, visit
