This article examines how the intersectionality between political, socio-cultural, and demographic factors influences femicide events and women's experiences in Gaza. Based on the testimonies of 13 female first-degree relatives of murdered women and 7 professionals, the article suggests the "politicological" logic of femicide to highlight the interrelationship between Israel's political and Palestinians' patriarchal control of the killed, the bereaved, and women's lives in Gaza. The article reveals that while all murderers are free and some have even fled Gaza, all women remain trapped in an immense political and patriarchal prison, lacking basic feelings of safety and the right to live.
