About Us

Real Protection Collective are a small group of friends who have decided we can not be quiet anymore as women and children are dying. 

We are counting the number of women killed violently in New Zealand so that women’s deaths are not invisible. We want New Zealanders to know the horrific rate of violence against women in this country and take action to prevent it.

We would like to acknowledge  the work of Destroy the Joint – Counting Dead Women Australia.

highest rate 2

NZ women are being killed as a result of assault at a rate that is twice the average for other OECD countries, and Maori women are four times more likely to be killed than other women in New Zealand.

If you have any information to add to this count, please email:
