UK: Green Party peer says all men should face 6pm curfew

Article here. Excerpt:

'Men should be banned from being outdoors after 6pm to 'make women a lot safer' after the abduction and suspected murder of Sarah Everard in London, a Green Party peer has suggested.

Baroness Jones made the comment in a discussion in the House of Lords during a debate on domestic violence.

The issue of women's safety has been again thrust into the spotlight following the disappearance of 33-year-old Ms Everard as she walked home to Brixton from her friend's home in Clapham, south-west London, on March 3.

The strength of feeling saw dozens of women shared their own harrowing stories online with the hashtags #saraheverard and #TooManyMen.

A vigil called Reclaim These Streets' has been organised to in a show of support that everyone should be able to walk in public without fear.

Tips for men to make women feel more comfortable at night have also been shared on social media.'
