Dear Chief Constable Ian Hopkins,

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

We are writing to you as community leaders from Greater Manchester'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 Greater Manchester 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.

Please add your name below and co-sign the letter to Ian Hopkins, Chief Constable of Greater Manchester Police.
