LUNCHTIME WEBINAR: Making Misogyny a Hate Crime in Scotland

LUNCHTIME WEBINAR: Making Misogyny a Hate Crime in Scotland

October 20, 2020, 12.15 – 13.30

The booking deadline for this event has passed. If you would like to attend, please email info@engender.org.uk.

Women and girls in Scotland face an epidemic of harassment and abuse - one way to challenge this could be the creation of a standalone offence of misogyny. Join us for this webinar with Engender's Executive Director Emma Ritch, and Sandy Brindley of Rape Crisis Scotland to hear about why we need action on misogyny, and why simply adding gender to existing hate crime legislation is not the answer.

This webinar will be held using Zoom, and a link and joining instructions will be sent to everyone who signs up. There will be live transcription of the webinar, and if there is anything else we can do to make it easier for you to attend, for example by providing BSL interpretation or sending slides through in advance, please let us know using the 'special requirements' box on the booking form.
