Sarah Everard, Gabby Petito, Sabina Nessa and Anne Colomines

Anne Colomines, Sarah Everard, Gabby Petito, Sabina Nessa – campaigners rightly urge us to remember the names of women killed in violent circumstances. In the past week alone, we have become intimately acquainted with these women because we know the terror of their final moments.

We know the smiling faces of these four women captured in a happier time and the dark side that lay beyond that. In so-called civilised societies and in a variety of predatory circumstances, their lives were brutally snuffed out – by a man claiming to have loved them, by a man who had become obsessed with them, or by a man who had simply lurked in the shadows, awaiting any opportunity that might arise.
