The government does not prioritize women’s lives and is not doing enough to tackle violence against women, Shadowdomestic Violence Minister Jess Phillips argues.
Reflecting recent attacks on British women, including the killing of teacher Sabina Nessa, Labor lawmakers said the government’s response was not strict enough: “Rapists have never had anything better than this. “He added.
British Victim Commissioner Dame Vera Baird QC has criticized police for advising women on how to stay safe rather than addressing cultural issues that lead to violence.
At a Labor Party fringe event, Damvera said last week’s death caused police to “give women rape alerts and inform them how to be safe.”
“I don’t know how Sabina was able to protect herself, even with the leaflets and rape alerts,” she said.
“She was only a five minute walk from the front door of the park. What can you do, wear an armor suit? Or have an armed escort for every woman. It’s It’s just a ridiculous concept. “
“The reason the current measures aren’t well-developed is that women’s lives are not a government priority,” Phillips said.
She added: “The reason we didn’t do anything to develop a strategy to confront criminals is that the winner of the vote as a sea boat is not enough and is said to be harsh on crime.
“The government is not strict about crime. Raipists have never committed a crime like this.”
The Ministry of Home Affairs has announced strategies to combat violence against women and girls, including plans to promote better street lighting and safer routes for women.
Interior Minister Priti Patel states that protecting women from harassment and violence is her priority.
Ministers also promised to improve the judicial system to improve the number of rape convictions.
