Abstract

Despite the burgeoning scholarship on femicide, there has been surprisingly little empirical investigation of the phenomenon in non-Western societies. This study addresses this empirical lacuna by focusing on female homicide victimization in Fiji, a non-Western society. Homicide data spanning an 11 -year period are analyzed for nature, scope and trends. The findings demonstrate that femicides in Fiji are associated with entrenched patriarchal ideologies and asymmetrical gender relations that privilege males.
