Misogyny Hate Crime Policy

Nottinghamshire Police made history in 2016 by becoming the first force in the country to recognise misogyny as a hate crime. Results showed there is clear support for the policy from men and women in the general public, as well as victims who have reported. The overall recommendations call for the policy to be rolled out nationally alongside publicity to increase reporting and education to help change behaviours.

Misogyny Hate Crime is working in Nottinghamshire – But will the rest of the country follow in our footsteps?
