"“We know women are less likely to report hate crime committed by strangers in public, which could be because discrimination is normalised for many women."

"Police crime reports indicate that gender will account for 41 per cent of hate crime across the region"

"Findings from the project indicate that 35 per cent of people deal with street harassment weekly and 58 per cent first experienced this when they were between 10 and 15 years old.
Of these, 98 per cent of the culprits were male and 81 per cent of people had not reported incidents to the police."

Fuck DD1 isn't too far off 10 and is tall so looks older than she is. I want to never let her walk down a street alone......... Still it's good this police force recognise this, let's hope more follow.
