Episode 48: Dawn Elizabeth Wilcox of Women Count USA

On this episode of en(gender)ed, our guest is Dawn Elizabeth Wilcox, a domestic violence survivor, activist and educator. Dawn has been working as a registered nurse for 23 years and runs Women Count USA, a national database that compiles data on femicides in the United States.  Dawn began this project in 2017 out of her home in Plano, Texas, and has collected more than 2,500 names over the past 2 years. Our conversation with Dawn will cover the urgency of femicide and violence against women as not only a national crisis, but an international one, and the ways in which the criminal justice, healthcare, and social welfare systems in our country continue to fail survivors of intimate partner violence and their children and communities. Dawn will also share with us her thoughts for how her work can be used to inform changes in the ways in which the media and law enforcement can better respond to intimate partner violence in our country.  You can email Dawn with news story links at

During our conversation, Dawn and I reference the following resources:
