Summary:
In Ecuador, the offense of femicide was criminalized for the first time with the entry into force of the Organic Comprehensive Criminal Code published in the Official Gazette 180 supplement of February 10, 2014, which is considered a normative evolution that protects better women whose people with whom they have had a relationship or any other kind of life, take their lives for reasons of gender, discrimination or as a result of power relations between men and women. With this background, it is stated that the typification of the crime of femicide in Ecuador, responded to the struggles of various social sectors, especially women, understanding femicide as the ultimate expression of violence that can be perpetrated against women , because they lose their lives. By virtue of the above, it is stated that in the present investigation the crime of femicide is analyzed, the objective, subjective elements of the criminal type; and, the application of the penalty, among other aspects, as in our legislation this criminal behavior is punishable by imprisonment from 22 to 26 years, while according to studies carried out in comparative legislation, it must be done in countries such as El Salvador and Guatemala, this offense is punishable by up to 50 years in prison, a situation that requires an analysis of the establishment of punishment for these cases. Likewise, it is indicated that in this work there are statistical data that show that femicide rates have been increasing in Ecuador, especially in the year 2017, 151 cases of femicide were reported, despite the entry into force of the Comprehensive Organic Penal Code, situation that merits further analysis from the academy.
