Men Falsely Accused of Rape Also Deserve Justice

More needs to be done to protect women who are victims of such crimes and the criminal justice system needs to get better at it. I think all this is true - but I don't think that that injustice means it is right to deny men justice when they suffer imprisonment and disgrace for something they did not do.

It's good news that crime is falling and our cities, towns and neighbourhoods are becoming safer. But there is much more to be done. It is alarming to see that the very people we depend on are being beaten up just for doing their job. They need to be treated with respect.

When a Father Kills - It Is More Than Just a Tragedy.

It is clear that there are other men out there (and some women) thinking about doing this and we should at least call them what they are - cowardly, violent men (usually) who can't face up to the stresses of life without resorting to terrible crimes.

The Paradox of Men in Power Shaping Responses to Violence Against Women and Girls

In a practical sense, no single remedy can address this endemic issue. Instead a range of solutions, constituting a holistic approach, are required. Firstly, a truly independent inquiry should be commissioned - one which is not led by any of the institutions implicated in the case, and further not implemented by a high profile man or men.

Trial By Media in Rotherham

The press has a role to play in scandals of this type. We need them to highlight this kind of horror and help us try to understand how such sickening events can continue for so very long unhindered. But we need them to do it responsibly. Deciding that one person is to blame for a situation which has been going on for decades - and is probably going on in other areas of the country too - does them no credit.

Sexual Grooming - An Issue of Race, Institutional Failures or Societal Values?

Dilly Hussain | Posted 29.08.2014 | UK
Dilly Hussain

I reject the racial link between the criminal's and their victims, in this case being mainly Pakistani men sexually abusing white girls. The role of race has no relevance to this act of sexual deviancy, just like it has no relevance with the prolific child sex abuse cases involving Jimmy Saville, Rolf Harris, Roman Catholic priests and the British political establishment.

Shining a Light on Child Sexual Abuse

Nick Lowles | Posted 28.08.2014 | UK
Nick Lowles

Rotherham is sadly just the latest in a long, and growing, list of British towns and cities which has experienced grooming by Pakistani/Kashmiri gangs.
