Lagarde has been the creator of this concept which is considered a part of the theoretical background of feminism. According to the feminist anthropologist, "femicide" includes the group of crimes against humanity crimes; such as abductions, disappearances of women and girls in the presence of an institutional collapse. A fracture in the rule of law favours impunity to these crimes.
