In Portugal, the OMA observatory, which monitors femicide, said so far in 2020, 30 women had been murdered, half of them victims of domestic violence. The government said there was a 6% drop in the number of complaints about violence in the first 10 months of 2020 from a year ago, which it said was a worrying sign that women struggled to access help during lockdown.
