Appearance before a Select Committee – we need your help!
We are delighted to announce that one of our team, Jo Costello, has been invited to present oral evidence to the Joint Committee on Human Rights and Violence Against Women and Girls on Wednesday November 19th at 9:45am. Jo has previously provided written evidence to the committee previously, on the subject of 'The adequacy of the response of the police, prosecution and judiciary to Violence Against Women and Girls', which is published on the UK Parliament website.
The oral evidence to be presented by Jo will be discussing media sexism and the representation of violence against women in the media. We know what we'd like to discuss, but without contribution from you, our supporters, we'll not be able to cover the (countless!) issues with the UK media.
So it's over to you - which articles or media coverage have you found particularly upsetting, distressing, inaccurate, offensive or just downright ignorant? Leave a link to the article or piece in question (with a brief outline of the problems with it) in the comments below, on our Facebook or Twitter feed and we'll include as many as we can in the evidence to the Select Committee.
Thanks for your help - we can't do this without you!
