One dramatic example of the violence that women had to endure was the case of “The Killings of the Cós”. On 22 August, 1858, six women workers, aged between 10 and 23, were assaulted by two men in the area known as the Cós rocks, on the Camí de les Xinxes. Three of them were killed and the others survived their injuries.
