A recent spate of violent deaths has politicians calling for better support for women and a national approach to tackling the scourge.
About 50 women have been killed in Australia this year, five of them in the past 10 days.
The deaths spanned the nation with women found dead in Perth, Bendigo, Canberra, Sydney, the Hunter region and Aldinga beach in South Australia.
In a joint statement Liberal MP Bridget Archer, Labor MP Alicia Payne and Greens spokeswomen on women Larissa Waters urged governments to tackle the root causes of violence, and transform harmful social norms that can lead to femicide.
They also called for more funding for frontline services that provide help to women escaping violence.
