It’s long been known that women carry out a significant proportion of sexual offences against men, women, and children, but the criminal justice system turns a blind eye to the matter. We covered the issue in our 2015 general election manifesto (pp. 31-7).
Feminists drafted the Sexual Offences Act 2003, and defined rape as a crime only men can commit. So I was pleased to learn today of a petition to the government and parliament which has attracted 875 signatures in just two days, an encouraging start. If and when it reaches 10,000 signatures, the government will have to respond to it. Please join me in signing it, which will take only seconds. Thank you.
If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.
