January 2018 will see the launch of a major piece of research, commissioned by Nottingham Women’s Centre and funded by Nottinghamshire PCC, to evaluate the success of the misogyny hate crime policy in Nottinghamshire. The research will be led by Dr Loretta Trickett from Nottingham Trent University, with Professor Louise Mullany from the University of Nottingham.
The aim of the research is to obtain information on levels of awareness of the policy change and whether it will encourage people to report examples of misogyny hate crime in Nottinghamshire. We want to understand the scale of misogyny hate crime in Nottinghamshire and the impact of the Nottinghamshire Police policy on women’s feelings of safety. The work will also gather data on men’s experiences, as well as evaluating the experiences of the police in working on this policy.
