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.

We assert that femicide and suicide rates will increase for women to unprecedented levels as a direct result of pandemic public health measures.
