Femicide is experienced almost every day in Turkey due to male violence; tens of thousands of families and children who are affected by the violence are, at the same time, left behind. In this study, in-depth interviews were conducted, using a qualitative method, with 6 children and 17 caregivers who were left behind following 10 cases of femicide, and the problems and needs experienced by these people are revealed.
