The scale of misogyny in our society must no longer be tolerated – Dawn Butler

Dawn Butler MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Women and Equalities, responding to the debate on making misogyny a hate crime, said:

“The scale of misogyny in our society must no longer be tolerated. There needs to be a fundamental review of all hate crime and sexual offences legislation to ensure victim protection and access to justice. Misogyny, particularly new issues like image-based sexual abuse or ‘revenge porn’, must be part of that discussion and the Government must immediately launch a consultation on reforming all aspects of these laws.”
