Crimes motivated by misandry — a contempt for men — ageism and prejudice against certain alternative cultures, such as goths or punks, may soon be added to hate crime legislation in England and Wales. The Law Commission, the independent body that recommends legal reforms, has for the past month been considering expanding such legislation to include prejudice against women, but it has now emerged that many more characteristics are up for debate.

Index on Censorship CEO Jodie Ginsberg discussed these issues with former chief crown prosecutor Nazir Afzal on BBC Breakfast.
