Whether in India, Mexico, or Russia, the killing of girls and women because of their gender happens every day around the world. The novels »Mulheres Empilhadas«, by Patrícia Melo, and »The Bass Rock«, by Evie Wyld, address this topic. In a discussion with Laura Backes, journalist and author of »Alle drei Tage« [tr. Every Third Day. Why Men Kill Women and What We Must Do about It], the two writers will exchange views on how they have dealt with the subject in their literary works and analyze the social mechanisms behind the violence.
