Freya’s Speech – Emma Humphreys Memorial Awards

Our founder’s acceptance speech for the Emma Humphreys Memorial Award prize. This was recorded at the FiLiA Women’s Right’s Conference in 2021.

Remembering Emma, and highlighting the vital work done by Centre for Women’s Justice. Please support the call for a full public inquiry into UK policing and its responses to violence against women and girls. In particular, when the alleged perpetrator is a police officer. Sarah Everard’s death is a watershed moment. An inquiry must be on a statutory footing under the Inquiries Act 2005. Nothing less will do.
