UK Justice Minister Raab Slammed for Not Knowing Definition of Misogyny in Confused TV Appearance
“Misogyny is absolutely wrong, whether it’s a man against a woman, or a woman against a man”— David Lammy (@DavidLammy) October 6, 2021
Justice Secretary @DominicRaab doesn't know the definition of misogyny.
No wonder the @Conservatives are hopeless at tackling violence against women and girls.

“What I meant was, if we are talking about things below the level of public order offences of harassment, intimidation, which are rightly criminalised – if we are talking about, effectively, insults with a sexist basis, I don’t think that criminalising those sorts of things will deal with the problem that we have got at the heart of the Sarah Everard case," Raab later said when trying to explain his confusion.
