Greens: Misogyny hate crime implementation must be community led

In response to the findings of the Women and Equalities Committee on the harrassment that women and girls face on the street [1], Green Party of England and Wales deputy leader Amelia Womack stated that efforts to make misogyny a hate crime must be implemented at the community leader. 

Womack said:

“The #metoo movement has underlined our need for a major culture shift, to change the way women are treated in our society. If the Government is to classify misogyny as a hate crime, it is critical that it is implemented at the local level so that  citizens know how to tackle sexism within their own communities."
