On this day, women around the world go to the streets to commemorate the murdered women and to remind the states that they are responsible for combating and preventing crimes against women.

Activists developed a Banner: December 6 - International Day for the Elimination of Femicide, as well as banners Stop ubijanju žena/Stop Killing Women, and leaflets with the information on femicide were also shared.
