Liberal Democrat Deputy Leader Jo Swinson MP, told the Victoria Derbyshire Programme that she supports making misogyny a hate crime.
Speaking on the programme, Jo Swinson said:
“Most women have experienced some kind of harassment in their daily life at some point. This is not acceptable, this is not okay.
“This isn’t about making a new crime, it is a hate crime definition that allows for information gathering, it encourages reporting, and means the police can have more intelligence about where misogyny is happening and when it increases.
“There is a real problem with violence against women and this would help give people the confidence to report it.”Leave a comment
