This debate will mark the last 12 months of controversy over misconduct by officers in the Metropolitan Police. Specifically, to mark International Women’s Day, the debate will examine reports of misogyny and sexual harassment across the force a year on from the murder of Sarah Everard on 3 March 2021.

A series of highly public controversies have continued to put the Met under scrutiny across 2021 and early 2022. Allegations of systemic misogyny and sexual harassment were mostly focussed on specific investigations and reports including:

  • The murder of Sarah Everard;
  • the policing of the Sarah Everard vigil in Clapham Common;
  • the murders of Bibaa Henry and Nicole Smallman;
  • The murder of Sabina Nessa;
  • the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) report into the behaviour of officers at Charing Cross police station;
  • The resignation of Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick.
