Our thanks to HEqual for this. The start of the piece:
A Tory MP has been accused of taking a ‘dismissive’ and ‘ridiculing’ approach to abuse against women after he tabled legislation calling for prejudice against men to be made a hate crime.
Liberal Democrat Wera Hobhouse will present a Bill in the Commons on Monday which seeks to require police forces to record hate crimes motivated by misogyny and make motivation by misogyny an aggravating factor in criminal sentencing.
But Conservative Philip Hollobone has tabled identical legislation – with ‘misandry’ also included.
