An MP read out the names of women who were murdered by men in the last year in the House of Commons yesterday (11 Mar).

Speaking in an International Women’s day debate, Jess Phillips, Labour MP for Birmingham Yardley, read out the names of 118 women and girls who were killed where a man has been charged or convicted as the primary perpetrator.

The reading of lists in the chamber is usually not allowed, and typically members are only allocated a maximum of three minutes to speak, however deputy speaker Dame Eleanor Laing suspended the time limit.

‘Killed women are common’

Ms Phillips said: "In this place we count what we care about. We count the vaccines done, the number of people on benefits, we rule or oppose based on a count and we obsessively track that data.

“We love to count data of our own popularity. However, we don't currently count dead women.

"Dead women is a thing we've all just accepted as part of our daily lives.”

She added: "Dead women is just one of those things. Killed women are not vanishingly rare. Killed women are common."

Here are the names of all the women that Jess Phillips MP read out in the commons yesterday.
