The UK’s low-paid, insecure labour market is failing single parents, creating a welfare policy quandary

Sumi Rabindrakumar discusses the findings and argues the government must act now to tackle low […]

    Rape and other acts of gendered violence should be included within hate crime legislation

Rape and other acts of gendered violence should be included within hate crime legislation

In many ways, the emotional experiences of survivors of rape are similar to those who experience hate crime victimisation. An important question to ask, therefore, is whether the inclusion of gender within hate crime law will help to ‘erode’ the patriarchal environment which supports the acceptance of gendered violence and the culture of blame attached to its victims. Mark Walters argues […]
