As you may know, Nottinghamshire Police Force were the first in the country to start recognising and recording misogyny and street harrassment incidents as hate crimes against women. Nottingham Women’s Centre was one of the main driving forces behind this and we are currently looking to raise awareness about the new policy and give information about how women can benefit from it by reporting these incidents to the police.
Over two leafleting sessions in the coming months we hope to promote our work and are asking anybody who is available to volunteer to get in touch and help us spread the word.
Details of what to expect are below!
Tuesday 13th March & Thursday 12th April 2018
- Meet at Nottingham Women’s Centre at 4.15pm for a briefing
- Spend about 2 hours on key tram stops going towards the station, handing out leaflets and talking to women
- Visit around 3 stops in total (tbc) in 2 teams (depending on numbers)
- Aim: to provide women at tram stops with information about misogyny hate crime and how to report incidents
If you are interested in taking part or have any questions, email Andrea at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope to see you there!
