Journalist Nabila Ram cannot get London police to take action on sexist and racist tweets

13:45 Nov 22 2011 London, England

Description
Journalist Nabila Ram details how the 1988 Malicious Communications Act in England is immediately put into effect when defending racist attacks against important sports figures, but violent sexist and racist attacks against her person are belittled and ignored by the police. An unusual case as we see an older piece of legislation being applied in the social networking sphere to fight against hate speech - but not against violence against women.
