Senate approves creation of femicide inquiry commission

Upper House unanimously backs move

(ANSA) - ROME, NOV 24 - The Senate on Thursday unanimously approved the creation of a parliamentary commission of inquiry into femicide and all forms of gender violence.
    Italy has suffered an alarming spate of murders in which women have been the victims. In most cases they were killed by their partners or their exes.
    The creation of the commission was approved with 139 votes in favour and none against It will be able to get down to work once its creation has also been approved by the Lower House.
    Senate Speaker Ignazio la Russa said Thursday that femicide was "essentially a question about men". (ANSA).
