Julia Mulligan wants to hear your views on Revenge Porn

Julia Mulligan, Police and Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire, wants to hear your views on Revenge Porn, the sharing of private pictures, without consent where the aim is to cause distress.

Julia is meeting with Justice Minister Mike Penning next week to outline the problems with the current law, that Revenge Porn victims are not subject to anonymity, as part of her campaign #NoMoreNaming, aimed at changing the law to stop the naming of Revenge Porn victims.

As part of her research Julia would like to hear your views on Revenge Porn and has produced a short survey.

The survey is open to everyone, it takes less than two minutes to complete and is available here:

Background information

In April 2015 it became an offence for a person to share a private sexual photograph or film without the subject’s permission if the aim is to cause them distress.

Between April and December 2015, some 1,160 incidents of the offence were reported to police and 61% of these resulted in no further action being taken.

Julia is calling for an urgent change to the law to give better legal protection for victims of this crime.

Last year Julia Mulligan and revenge porn victim Keeley Richards-Shaw started the #NoMoreNaming campaign to change the law and to stop the naming of revenge porn victims. So far, the campaign has received 15,470 signatures.
