Homeless ‘people’ in London

I frequently check out the British website ‘The Rights of Man’ (‘TROM’)http://therightsofman.typepad.co.uk for items which might otherwise escape my attention. This morning they’re covering an intriguing story about the rise in the number of homeless people in London in recent years, and they point to a detail in a press release issued by an organisation concerned with the homeless in London, Broadway. Here’s the press release:

Links to the full report and summary may be found on the TROM website. The press release states that 6,437 ‘people’ were seen sleeping rough on the streets of London during 2012/13, and that 786 (12%) were female. What wasn’t deemed worthy of mention in the press release?

5,651 (88%) were male

 

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.
