This study of femicide involving elderly women, or female geronticide includes an empirical report on the findings of the first longitudinal study on female geronticide in Israel, which demonstrates that over a period of 10 years female geronticide was perpetrated solely by intimate male partners. The findings are important for policy-makers in Israel but have applications globally.

This article reviews the current literature in the field, using a sociocultural theoretical framework, and critically examines the effect of modernization processes on the phenomenon, distinguishing between Arab and Muslim countries and Western countries. The review shows that despite modernization processes, and at times owing to concerns about these processes, the use of honor killings as a tool to strengthen patriarchal control seems to be widening.

The article offers a collocation of COVID-19 alongside two other pandemics that are likely to increase during and after public health responses to the coronavirus: suicide and femicide. Both of these forms of violence are patterned, predictable, and highly gendered. We assert that femicide and suicide rates will increase for women to unprecedented levels as a direct result of pandemic public health measures.

It is the first report of its kind in Israel. Special attention will be paid to the connection between femicide and covid-19 during this difficult year.
