  • Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “New plans announced to tackle violence against women, but do they go far enough?” – below is their description.

    New plans have been announced by the government to tackle violence against women in England and Wales.

    Earlier, at the Clapham bandstand where people gathered back in March to pay tribute to Sarah Everard, we spoke to three generations of women – Nimco Ali, who is the government’s independent adviser on tackling violence against women and girls, veteran Labour MP Harriet Harman who was the first minister for women and has campaigned to criminalise ‘kerb crawling’, and student Gemma Tutton, from the campaign group Our Streets Now.

    We began by asking Nimco Ali what the report she helped to write would do to keep women safe.
