Wolf-whistling at women could soon be a hate crime

Police chiefs are looking at recording misogyny as a hate crime – including incidents of men whistling at women.

Forces are being asked to 'consider the case' for monitoring sexist abuse and harassment.

It means misogyny – defined by police chiefs as 'behaviour targeted towards a woman by men simply because they are a woman' – would sit alongside crimes where victims are attacked for their race, religion or sexual orientation.

If agreed, abuse directed at women would be treated more seriously than comparable crimes against men, and could even lead to tougher sentences in the courts. Misogynistic incidents will include harassment in the street, verbal abuse, unwanted physical approaches, taking photographs without consent or sending unwanted text messages.

Nottinghamshire Police began trialling the scheme in July 2016 and were followed by a handful of other forces. Now recording misogyny as a hate crime could be rolled out across all 43 forces in England and Wales.

A National Police Chiefs' Council spokesman said: 'Police forces in England and Wales annually monitor five strands of hate crime. 'Police chiefs will be presented with a paper that asks them to consider the case for monitoring gender-based hate crime in the same way.'

They are probably looking for something to do because they have so much spare time.

Re: Wolf-whistling at women could soon be a hate crime

Well I am in favour of outlawing sexism

I oft feel uncomfortable when I feel women are undressing me with their eyes.

Re: Wolf-whistling at women could soon be a hate crime

Wolves everywhere will be howling all night in protest............a leading wolf has said, "we will be organising a march through the streets of London in the near future". The whole situation is now to be debated at the UN.

Absolutely ridiculous, have they nothing better to do.
I would think most women from time to time are actually pleased to receive a whistle. especially the BIG FAT UGLY ones and oh boy there are plenty of those around. Just stand by the Salad Bar if you don't believe me. cos yep diet's dont work and they just like fooling themselves.

LOL OF, that's sooo Not pc (imo), but it did make me laugh

The whole PC thing has become absolutely stupid!


I agree with others who think that the police & lawmakers should concentrate on real crimes, lord knows there's enough of it going on!!!!

Re: Wolf-whistling at women could soon be a hate crime

Well in my day if you got a wolf whistle you were quite flattered, what is wrong with people who just can't wait to be "offended" by anything and everything.
