Hundreds of women took part in so-called “die-in” protests in central Paris on Saturday, hoping to draw attention to domestic violence against women.
More than 120 women are believed to have been killed as a direct result of domestic violence in France so far this year according to local associations.
Demonstrators held up signs with the names of French victims and fell to the ground, before getting up and chanting, “Not one more.”
Sandrine Bouchait, who heads a victims’ association and whose sister was burned to death in 2017 by her partner in front of her seven year-old daughter, told Reuters Television the death toll was unacceptable.
