UK: Schools urged to give lessons to boys on how to respect women and girls

Article here. Excerpt:

'Former Prime Minister Theresa May said that any focus on changing attitudes should deal with perpetrators and suggested boys should be taught about ‘respect for women and what is or is not acceptable in relationships’.

Ministers are being pressed to introduce new laws that would make public sexual harassment and misogyny specific crimes as part of its strategy to tackle violence against women and girls.

It comes in the wake of the alleged kidnap and murder of Sarah Everard, whose body was found in a Kent woodland a week after she went missing as she walked home from a friend’s in Clapham, south London, on March 3.'
