MWNUK Response Consultation Prosecuting Child Sex Abuse Cases
The Crown Prosecution Service set out ‘Interim Guidelines on Prosecuting Cases of Child Sexual Abuse,’ which were opened for public consultation until 3 September 2013.
The the guidelines made very little mention of BME victims. In light of the pilot study conducted by MWNUK,UNHEARD VOICES: Sexual Exploitation of Asian Girls and Young Women, we responded to the consultations and pointed out concerns and made recommendations.

There is no greater time than now for the voices, representation and power of Muslim women to be visible in the feminist movement and all walks of life. MWNUK is a vital force in delivering this much needed balance and representation.
