SAY HER NAME

In Memory of women from racialised minority communities who have been killed in the UK

 
Welcome to our #SayHerName* remembrance page. We have listed women from racialised minority communities who have been killed in the UK in the last few decades. This is not an exhaustive list as the names are based on information found online. Most of the women have been killed (or allegedly murdered where ongoing cases are concerned) by a male partner or family member or person known to them. If you would like a name to be added to this page as, inevitably, we will have missed the names of many, please email contact@mwnuk.co.uk.
 
Why #SayHerName?
