Lessons learnt from Nottinghamshire Pilot into Misogyny Based Hate Crime

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The Mayor’s refreshed Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) Strategy, published on 9 March 2018, included a commitment that MOPAC would await and evaluate learning and evidence from the Nottinghamshire pilot on using misogyny as a criterion for recording hate crime.

An evaluation of the pilot was released in July 2018, MOPAC reviewed this evaluation and are in agreement with the NPCC that a further review is required before any lessons learnt can be established and before any further decisions on Misogyny as a Hate Crime can be made.

In October 2018 the Home Office announced a review of hate crime and consideration will be given to include additional protected characteristics.

Findings of both reviews will be considered together to inform MOPACs response on the lessons learnt.
