Over the last year in the UK, 118 women and girls were killed by men.

It’s a figure so shocking, that the MP Jess Philips read out the name of every victim in the House of Commons on International Women’s Day last month.

One illustrator has responded by creating portraits of every victim to remember them and make their stories visible.

Sky’s Enda Brady reports.
