Dear Commissioner Cressida Dick,

Making misogyny a hate crime in London and across England and Wales.

We are writing to you as community leaders from London’s diverse educational, cultural and religious institutions, as well as national women’s organisations. We call on you to follow the example set by other police forces, such as the Nottinghamshire and Northamptonshire police forces, and make misogyny a hate crime recorded by the Metropolitan Police.

Data shows that an overwhelming huge majority of young women (85%) and nearly half (45%) of all women have been sexually harassed in public places.  Yet, only one in ten received help after these incidents.

The National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC) are meeting shortly to discuss a national roll out of this policy. We urge you to agree that all police forces in England and Wales should record misogyny as a hate crime, so that we can begin to address the underlying cause of violence against women and girls, which is endemic in our society.

Read our full letter here.

Please add your name to this call and co-sign a letter to Cressida Dick, Metropolitan Police Commissioner.

    I am signing this because I am among the 85% of women who have been sexually harassed at work, in the streets, in bars, waiting at the bus stop – yet I’ve never felt empowered or able to report this to the police. By making misogyny a hate crime you will send a powerful message to all women that these experiences are NOT OK, they are NOT something we should just “grin and bear”. Perhaps the next generation will feel more empowered to report and eventually prevent this traumatising abuse.
