Prevention of Incitement to Sexual Crime and Violence

Prevention of Incitement to Sexual Crime and Violence

Date tabled: 01.02.2016

Primary sponsor: Tommy Sheppard

Sponsors: Deidre Brock, Anne McLaughlin, Kirsten Oswald, Joanna Cherry and Ian Blackford

Motion:

That this House strongly condemns what it understands is the organisation of sexist and hate-mongering meetings across the UK by so-called pick-up artist Roosh V; believes that these meetings are misogynistic and that such behaviour is not tolerable in modern day society; affirms that there is never an argument to advocate rape; further believes that, while women keep being taught to avoid sexual assault, not enough is done to educate those men who may become predators; welcomes the work of police forces across the UK, including Police Scotland, to raise awareness of sexual crime; considers that sexual and violent speeches are clear acts of incitement that must not be tolerated by the law; and calls for action to be taken.
