Terrible news from Mazar-e-Sharif: dead bodies of four women’s rights activists were found in the city. Frozan Safi (in the picture) is one of them. Frozan’s relatives say she along with three others have been disappeared days before.

These are not isolated incidents. Institutionalised misogyny & racism mean the police fail victims again and again bbc.co.uk/news/uk-englan…
‘Honour-based’ offences soared by 81% in last five years theguardian.com/society/2021/o…
Given the systematic change needed to stop anything like this from happening again, action that will only impact a few officers is wholly unacceptable. We need action to address sexism and racism in policing if we are to rebuild trust in the police. endviolenceagainstwomen.org.uk/iopc-police-ab…

Violence against women and girls isn’t inevitable, but we need ambitious #spending on prevention to free future generations from gendered abuse. Today's #budget is a missed opportunity for government to follow through on its many promises to tackle VAWG. endviolenceagainstwomen.org.uk/budget-missed-…

Yesterday a male teacher openly mocked my son for turning back at the school gate to wave goodbye to me. Today my son said he wants to stop waving from now on. This is how it starts

This afternoon I had a call to pick up my youngest from nursery because he was unwell, I arranged cover for my remaining lessons and went to SLT to tell them I had to leave, in response I got asked; ‘Does it have to be you? Why can’t your wife do it?’

This is hugely concerning when rape prosecutions remain at the lowest levels on record. We've lost vital expertise in investigating and prosecuting sexual violence as a result of several of these units being dissolved due to funding cuts in recent years. theguardian.com/society/2021/o…

The solution won't be an app or a street lamp. It will be systemic, complex and ambitious, to fit the scale of the problem. This just suggests they want to tick a box, trumpet a headline and brush the whole thing back under the carpet. Nothing changes. #FixTheSystemNotTheWomen
It is absurd to say every woman's movements should be tracked on every journey. If you're prepared to do this, why not track men? If one of them goes off piste, check to see if they stopped to assault or rape or murder or abduct a woman. If they've detoured to dispose of a body.
Imagine living in a country where the Home Secretary is happy to back these kind of solutions. Happy with a status quo where women are in such danger that they have to call a phone line every time they want to go anywhere before setting off.
These kind of sticking plasters completely fail to recognise that the majority of victims of male violence are unsafe in their own homes, on campus, at school, in the workplace. It isn't just strangers in dark alleyways. Even now, the government still doesn't get this
Not only would this not actually prevent violence, it would also inevitably just present a new way to blame victims. She didn't call 888? Well then what did she expect?
This does nothing to tackle the real problem: male violence. Endemic everyday sexism. The notion of women's bodies as public property. Toxic masculinity.
Absolutely exhausting after all that's been said over the past 6 months that the Home Secretary & others still think imposing more restrictions & responsibilities on women to 'keep themselves safe' is the solution here bbc.co.uk/news/uk-588545…

In this video I explain the preliminary results of @NoSchoolSexism's research into gender bias in KS3 English texts. 75% of pupils never read a book/play by a woman. 84% of texts taught have a male protagonist. We are teaching children that women's voices don't matter. twitter.com/WomenEd/status…

Am I looking in the wrong place? I've not seen any advice from the Met to men anywhere.

This is what it looks like when you don’t join the dots… don’t recognise that misogyny and violence are a spectrum … don’t take women seriously … and we pay with our lives theguardian.com/uk-news/2021/o…
This is what it looks like when you don’t join the dots and you’re not interested in tackling a culture of misogyny : Met officers investigated over Couzens WhatsApp group are still on duty theguardian.com/uk-news/2021/o…
@JujuliaGrace When I was 22 the PO who arrested a guy who mugged me called me repeatedly to ask for a date. When I kept turning him down he said he was "keeping tabs on me" & took to driving by my flat v slowly all the time. I was scared to go out in case I ran into him.

I was punched to the ground by a man, sustaining facial injuries requiring hospital attendance. The police officer who attended the scene then took my phone number under false pretences and called me repeatedly for weeks until eventually admitting he had done so to ask me...

Just when you think the absurdity of victim blaming could not possibly go any further, here is a Police Commissioner openly blaming Sarah Everard for what happened to her on BBC radio bbc.co.uk/news/uk-englan… #FixTheSystemNotTheWomen
True justice means no more women losing their lives to male violence. We need better responses across government, funding for life-saving support services and a focus on preventing male violence, rather than expecting women to keep ourselves safe, says @EVAWuk's Andrea Simon. twitter.com/Channel4News/s…

We cannot talk about rebuilding women's trust in the police without addressing the many ways racist hostile environment immigration policies leave migrant women more afraid of the police than of their perpetrators. Important thread from our member @lawrsuk 🔽twitter.com/lawrsuk/status…3

We have so many of these stories from women working in the police force. Very clear evidence of institutionalised misogyny
Institutionalised misogyny: we have been deluged with stories like this from currently serving police officers
Everywhere you look there is unchallenged systemic misogyny. Yet there is no appetite to uncover or to tackle it. twitter.com/NWCI/status/14…
The idea that women are now responsible for 'waving down a bus' to save themselves from being abducted is ABSURD. Stop telling women how to behave/escape and start holding institutions accountable. bbc.co.uk/news/uk-587609…
This isn't one 'bad apple' this is institutionalised misogyny. This is a culture of normalised sexism. bbc.co.uk/news/uk-587609…
Can’t quite believe what I just heard on @BBCWorldatOne. Former Met chief super Parm Sandhu saying female officers don’t always report suspicious behaviour of male colleagues because they “close ranks” & you risk being left to get your head kicked in on duty if you call for help

"After Everard’s disappearance, police told women in Clapham not to go out alone. After Nessa’s murder, Greenwich Council handed out attack alarms to women. 78 more women dead and we haven’t learned that policing women’s behaviour isn’t the solution" standard.co.uk/insider/sarah-…

This is not 'an occasional bad 'un'. This is systemic misogyny and racism. In a country where just 1.4% rapes reported to police result in a charge or summons and 3/4 domestic abuse cases closed with no charge.
