The article reviews homicide cases involving women as victims committed in Turin from 1905 to 2005. Data were retrieved from the registers of the Institute of Legal Medicine of the University of Turin and integrated, whenever possible, with documentation on single homicide cases, reports from court experts and police records from police department archives. Data analysis focused on a case-by-case examination of information about the homicide, the place and time it was committed, how and why it was done. In a second step, information about the victim was studied, her age and what she was doing at the moment of the crime.
