UK Justice Secretary Dominic Raab told BBC Breakfast that misogyny is wrong even if its ‘a woman against a man’.
Raab was asked on his opinion on Boris Johnson saying he does not support calls to make misogyny a hate crime.
Raab responded: “I think we have often seen in the criminal justice system over decades people trying to legislate away what is an enforcement problem”.
“Misogyny is absolutely wrong whether it’s a man against a woman, or a woman against a man”.
Raab was then asked if his comments were what he meant to say, before being read the dictionary definition of misogyny – “Hatred against or directed towards women”.
Dominic Raab and the Government, including Boris Johnson, support strengthening existing laws, rather than implementing new ones.
UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson said earlier in the week that “rather than introducing new laws, what you need to do is enforce the existing laws”.
