Eight weeks, eight women killed in crimes of passion in Italy


In the past eight weeks, drugs eight women have been killed in similar circumstances in Italy. All eight were murdered by men unable to accept rejection.

According to Fabio Piacenti, the president of Eures, a social research institute, "there is no infidelity at the root of these crimes,on the
contrary, infidelity is even tolerated so long as the relationship
continues. What some men find intolerable is the breaking up."

These cases point to two frightening phenomena – the ineffectiveness of law enforcement for domestic complaints; and what has been described as "an antiquated, arrogant and androcentric culture" in this article from the Guardian.
