This exploratory study identifies intimate femicide as a missing link in social science research on violence against women. This study examines women killed in the United States. Results indicate that approximately four women were killed by intimate partners every day during 1980, 1981, and 1982. Information is presented on the age of the victims and offenders, the weapons used to kill female intimate victims, the situation and circumstances surrounding the homicide, and the racial and ethnic backgrounds of victims. It is suggested that intimate femicide is a social problem that merits informed discussion, as well as additional research to explore in more depth the killing of women by male intimate partners.
