The Nottinghamshire based pilot of recording misogynistic incidents as hate crimes has gained a lot of attention, praise and criticism from all sides of political spectrum. With the ongoing legal review considering how sex and gender characteristics are treated within existing hate crime laws and whether new offences are needed, the momentum for discussion on widespread misogynistic attitudes in the public domain and potential avenues for challenging those is strong.
Join our discussion with a fantastic panel comprised of experts from political, legal, academic and civil society backgrounds to discuss what you can do to challenge gender stereotypes and misogynistic attitudes and behaviours in Nottingham and beyond.

Amelia Womack, Green Party Deputy Leader,
