Abstract: This research investigates the phenomenon of femicides in Greece within the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, spanning the years 2020-2021. Through the lens of feminist discourse, it analyzes the fundamental factors and underlying causes contributing to femicides, emphasizing the societal implications and the role of media in shaping public discourse. The study comprises two main parts: an exploration of theoretical frameworks underpinning feminist discourse on femicide, and an examination of feminist responses to femicides during the specified timeframe. Drawing on empirical data and thematic analysis, the research highlights the significant role played by feminist activists in popularizing the term "femicide" and elevating gender-based violence to a central theme in public discussions.The convergence of femicide discourse with the COVID-19 pandemic represents a pivotal moment in Greek feminist activism, catalyzing extensive media coverage and societal awareness of the issue. Furthermore, the research underscores the media's influence in amplifying discussions on femicides and shaping public perceptions, emphasizing the need for constructive media engagement in addressing gender-based violence. Overall, this study contributes to the understanding of femicide as a complex social phenomenon and advocates for effective interventions and preventive measures informed by feminist perspectives.
