Online event – The House Briefing – Women’s Safety

Event date and time – 1st March, 2022, 10am -2.35pm

Overview

The safety of women and girls has become a major societal and political issue in recent months, following the horrific deaths of Sarah Everard and Bibaa Henry, amongst others. But this is on top of long-term problems around domestic violence, with a woman being killed by a man every three days in the UK, and these incidents increased during the Covid-19 pandemic. Meanwhile, rape convictions are at an all time low, with victims withdrawing their support for 57% of cases in 2020. In schools, colleges, and universities, a culture of rape and sexual harassment has been brought to public notice recently, which is a concern for educational establishments across the country.

How do we tackle this epidemic of violence against women and girls? How can government policy effectively address this problem? How should policing be modified to ensure women are better protected and cases more effectively addressed? How can we better educate the men and boys who perpetrate these crimes?
