David Lammy – 2021 Comments on Ending Violence Against Women

The comments made by David Lammy, the Shadow Justice Secretary, on 17 May 2021.

The Conservatives are failing to protect women and girls from violent criminals, which should be one of the first duties of any government.

With record low conviction rates for perpetrators of sexual violence and an epidemic of misogyny that makes women and girls feel unsafe, this Government is treating victims of violence as an afterthought.

Enough is enough. Labour is putting tackling gender-based violence at the very top of our agenda.
