Nottinghamshire Police records misogyny as a hate crime
Harassment of women is to be recorded as a hate crime in a bid to tackle sexist abuse.
Nottinghamshire Police said it would expand its categories to include misogynistic incidents.
It means abuse or harassment which might not be a crime can be reported to and investigated by the police, and support for the victim put in place.
Nottingham Women's Centre said it hopes it will help give more victims the courage to report incidents.
Chief Constable Sue Fish claimed it will make the county a safer place for women. via BBC
