Rome, March 28 - Italy's centre-left Democratic
Party (PD) on Thursday called on the authorities in Naples to
remove billboards accused of exalting femicide to sell cleaning
cloths.
The ad features what appears to be a murdered woman's body
with the slogan "Don't leave a trace".
''We denounce the posters in Naples that explicitly refer
to femicide to sell cloths'', said PD MP Roberta Agostini.
''These are sexist, violent images inspired by the
experience of hundreds of women a year. We call on Naples Mayor
Luigi de Magistris and on the mayors of other towns where the
posters have gone up to immediately remove these macabre
images''.
A third of women in Italy reported being victims of serious
domestic violence, according to a 2012 UN report citing data
from Italian statistics agency ISTAT.
According to the report, 127 women were murdered by men in
Italy in 2010, often as a result of ''honor, men's unemployment
or jealousy''.
