Greens politician proposes 6pm curfew for men to limit violence against women

Baroness Jenny Jones from the Greens Party of England has proposed a curfew for all men from 6:00pm as a measure to minimise violence against women, says Sky News host Rowan Dean. “At the next opportunity for any bill that’s appropriate I might actually put in an amendment to put in a curfew for men on the streets after 6:00pm which I feel would make women much safer,” she said. However, a former police officer was slammed after offering alternate advice, urging women to be aware of their surroundings and prepare to run if the need arises. Highlighting the two different views Mr Dean said, “warning women and young girls be careful out there … that’s bad that’s terrible but locking all men up innocent or guilty from 6:00pm no problems that’s the left”. Sky News host James Morrow said the advice offered by the former police officer was “common sense” and “not misogyny”. “The human condition is that sometimes there are people out there who have bad intentions and it’s not denying your own agency to take some precautions and to make yourself less of a target,” he said.
