UK: St Albans Liberal Democrats call for royal commission

Article here. Excerpt:

'Liberal Democrats on St Albans council are spearheading a call for the government and police leaders to take urgent action to curb male violence against women and girls.

In a motion to be debated by the full council on Wednesday, October 13, they are pressing for Chris White, the leader of St Albans in Hertfordshire council, to write to the home secretary and prime minister to demand a royal commission into male violence against women.

The letter will also call for misogyny to be ruled as a hate crime and for increased investment in victims’ services.'
