The Daily Telegraph has today published a letter and report calling on the Government to amend its cyberflashing proposals to include all men who send nude images without consent. Signed by UN Women, Bumble, Women’s Aid, Refuge and Professor McGlynn, the letter says that the proposed cyberflashing law does not go far enough as it would exclude those sending pictures 'for a laugh'.
The letter is part of a high-profile campaign by dating app Bumble to introduce a consent-based cyberflashing law, based on Professor McGlynn’s research.
You can read Professor McGlynn’s evidence to the parliamentary committee reviewing the law here.
