Urgent Appeal: North Yorkshire PFCC by-election

WE are contesting the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner by-election to put ending violence against women and girls right at the centre of the election. It’s time to send a message to politicians that enough is enough. Women are tired of the threat of violence we live with every single day. And we’re tired of protesting against it.

It is not good enough for politicians to just say the right words when violence against women and girls hits the headlines. We need real political action to actually end violence against women and girls.

This by-election is the result of former Conservative PFCC, Philip Allott’s resignation, who was forced to stand down following disgraceful, victim blaming comments that put the responsibility for women’s safety on the shoulders of individual women, instead of the institutions tasked with protecting us.

With others, WE campaigned locally to apply the pressure that resulted in him resigning. Now we must seize the opportunity to build a better future for women and girls in North Yorkshire. Our candidate will be Dr Hannah Barham-Brown, a GP registrar and Deputy Leader of the Women’s Equality Party. She will:

  • Provide a radically different template for how policing, with respect to ending violence against women and girls, could and should be done
  • Call for an independent inquiry into misogyny and sexism in North Yorkshire Police
  • Ensure that ending violence against women and girls becomes, and stays, a political and policity priority
  • Lobby other parties to adopt our policies to end violence against women and girls

Help us amplify the voices of women in North Yorkshire, and everywhere, and send a message to the government that enough is enough.
