Objective: To determine the incidence of extreme violence against women (EVAW) and femicide; and some risk factors in Peru from 2009 until 2014. Method: Observational research of secondary data (2009-2014) from the Criminality´s Observatory of the Public Ministry. Results: Tacna (RT = 3.144; IC95% = 2,622-3,770), Madre de Dios (RR = 2,611; IC95% = 1,828-3,730), Junín (RR = 2.302; IC95% = 2.017-2.627), Ayacucho (RR = 2.101; IC95% = 1.720-2.567) and Huánuco (RR = 1.393; IC95% = 1.199-1.619) had more femicide risk. There is a greater EVAW risk (RR = 1.329, 95%CI = 1.090-1.622) and femicide risk (RR = 1.427, 95%CI = 1.139-1.789) in January. EVAW is more likely to culminate in femicide when the aggressor is ≤12 years old, (cOR = 8.698, 95%CI = 2.482-53.660), or ≥65 years old (cOR = 8,263, 95%CI = 1.525-173.100), when the aggressor is unknown (cOR = 4.697, 95%CI = 1.599-19.360), known person (cOR = 4.216; 95%CI = 1.626-13.910), a family member (cOR = 2.150; 95%CI = 1.260-3.843) or partner (cOR = 1.337, 95%CI = 1.008-1.772) Conclusions: EVAW and femicide risk are higher in January; also, femicide risk is higher when the VECM occurs in a non-intimate setting and it is perpetrated by an unknown person.
