[Note added 4.10.14: A link to the government statistics which prove that Laura Bates’s claim was a lie is here.]
Laura Bates recently won our ‘Lying Feminist of the Month’ award, due to a lie she uttered in a presentation in December 2013 about the number of women killed by partners and ex-partners. She declined to retract the lie when publicly challenged by J4MB on the matter.
When challenged on the BBC3 programme Free Speech Live about the matter earlier this evening, she repeated the lie. We will publish a blog post on the matter tomorrow, along with a link to the video footage.
Ms Bates was a particularly deserving winner of the award, and her certificate is here.
