Misogyny is the hatred of, contempt for, or prejudice against women or girls. Misogyny manifests in numerous ways, including social exclusion, sex discrimination, hostility, androcentrism, patriarchy, male privilege, belittling of women, violence against women, and sexual objectification.
Misogyny Hate Crime – Nottingham makes history!
Nottingham Police made history in 2016 by becoming the first force in the country to recognise misogyny as a hate crime. Here at Nottingham Women’s Centre, we worked closely alongside them, and many other organisations, to make this happen. Read Nottingham’s story, find out what Misogyny Hate Crime is, as well as how to report it by clicking through the buttons below.
Misogyny takes shape in multiple forms, one of which is sexual harassment in workplace – to help tackle this issue, we’ve st up #TimesUpNotts – a network of women taking action to end sexual harassment at work in Nottinghamshire. Check out the #TimesUpNotts tab for more details and how to get involved.
