On Tuesday 22nd February, our Centre Manager Melanie Jeffs gave evidence at a Home Affairs Select Committee meeting on ‘Hate Crime and its Violent Consequences’. She was asked to give evidence on the rationale behind the local move to classify misogyny as a hate crime, alongside Sarah Green from the End Violence Against Women Coalition, and representatives from the police, including Superintendent Ted Antill from Nottinghamshire Police. The aim of the session was to give MPs a chance to explore the subject and to ask questions. We hope that it contributes to the push to roll this initiative out on a national level.
Here is a short clip from the session of Melanie responding to a question about why police should focus any of their resources on tackling misogynistic hate:
