Jess Phillips calls government plans to crackdown on sexual harassment 'very disappointing'

Sky, 22 Jul 2021
The Government has announced a crackdown on sexual harassment, as part of its strategy to tackle violence against women and girls.

Measures include commissioning a rape and sexual assault helpline, and updated guidance for schools and colleges to ensure staff know how to deal with reports of sexual violence and harassment.

The strategy follows a public consultation, taking in evidence from 180,000 people - the vast majority after the murder of Sarah Everard.


Labour MP Jess Phillips says the police don't have the resources needed to protect the number of harassment and abuse cases against women and girls.
