I remember being asked by police whether I consented to sexual activity at any point. A child cannot consent. I was abused for nearly a decade by successive men, who took advantage of me while authorities turned a blind eye. I didn’t consent. No child can.

Here is my sister, a Dr of astronomy who received a job offer from NASA and has used the Hubble telescope, next to some clothes for 'boys 3-12' in @nextofficial. We looked for the NASA tops in the girls' section but sadly they all just had unicorns on. @EverydaySexism

The Times has suggested a reading list for our next Prime Minister. Of the 29 authors and editors recommended, none are women. With 56 MPs (almost 10%) currently under investigation for sexual misconduct we think a rather different reading list might be in order. #everydaysexism
❗ While victims and survivors are living with the impacts of horrific sexual abuse, the police officers who failed them so monumentally, have avoided any repercussions. Read our comment on the IOPC's 'Operation Linden' report ⬇️ rapecrisis.org.uk/news/no-police…

🧵Lucia* came to our service seeking support as she was experiencing gender-based abuse. Eight days after reporting to the police, she got an immigration enforcement letter confirming her abuser's threats. Lucia was not seen as a victim but as an immigration offender. 1/6twitter.com/seblebanon/sta…E

Every time Laurence Fox says something reprehensible, it is Billie Piper's name, not his, that trends on Twitter. Now Prue Leith is trending instead of her anti-abortion MP son Danny Kruger. Stop blaming women for what the men in their lives do #EverydaySexism
Currently only women in Northern Ireland have protected human right to an abortion in law. I will be tabling amendment to forthcoming UK bill of rights to guarantee this for all UK women. If you want your MP to vote for it - as will be free vote- tell them! #nowforUK

🚨BREAKING: the Government have launched a brazen attack on our fundamental rights. ⚠️The#RightsRemovalBilll erodes state accountability for violence against women and girls. ✊We are in solidarity with the many voices - in the women's sector and beyond - in opposing it.b
Retweeted by EverydaySexism
📢We are under no illusion that this is an attempt to weaken the rights to which we are all entitled, and any suggestion that these changes will support survivors of violence against women and girls is deeply disingenuous. #RightsRemovalBilll#SaveYourRightsstwitter.com/EVAWuk/status/…8

🚨 The government is ripping up our#HumanRightsActt and our ability to challenge its failures❗️ The#RightsRemovalBilll constitutes yet another attack on our society and all those living within it. The VAWG sector is united against it! #SaveYourRightssendviolenceagainstwomen.org.uk/british-bill-o…R

We stand with rape victims and survivors, @RapeCrisisEandW @centreWJ and countless others demanding an end to victim-blaming and for @CPSUK to reverse the new guidance and #KeepCounsellingConfidential
Retweeted by EverydaySexism
New @CPSUK guidance doesn't apply to perpetrators, only victims - reinforcing the message that it is survivors under investigation. This will stop survivors accessing support and cause trauma to those going through the courts #KeepCounsellingConfidential endviolenceagainstwomen.org.uk/new-cps-guidan…

'These are not isolated incidents. They are the opposite. And the opposite of an isolated incident is a pattern.' Combining stories with shocking evidence, @EverydaySexism's Fix the System, Not the Women is a blazing examination of sexual injustice and a rallying cry for reform.

Survivors of rape are being forced to choose between justice and therapy. Counselling should be a private and safe space for healing, but this is being compromised by requests from the police for a survivor’s counselling notes. We call on the CPS to #KeepCounsellingConfidential

Laura Bates @EverydaySexism on @BBCWomansHour - my daughter was raped by a stranger - when he was on remand, he found our address and sent someone to our house to hunt down my daughter. Police refused to investigate. I had to make them. This is not justice.
