In 2016 to mark International Women's Day, Jess Phillips the Labour MP for Birmingham Yardley read aloud the 125 names of women in the UK who had been murdered by men.

Phillips vowed to repeat the act every year she is a member of the Commons.

The list, from the 'Femicide Census' records the names of women killed, where a man was the perpetrator or is the lead suspect, since last year's International Women's Day.

In their 2017 report, they record that 598 women in England and Wales were killed by their current or former partner between 2009-2015.

Among those named this year were Phillip's fellow MP, Jo Cox, who was murdered by Thomas Mair on 16 June 2016.

Here is Phillip's list of 113 women, as transcribed by the Common's record Hansard.​
