Event DetailsWebsiteRegister to Attend

‘Revenge Porn’ is the sharing of private, often sexual or explicit, photos or videos of another person without their consent and with the purpose of causing embarrassment or distress. It can have devastating consequences for victims and have a severe impact on their mental health and wellbeing.

 

New figures show that between April and October 2015 nearly 200 cases of revenge porn were reported to police, by victims as young as 12. Though with figures drawn from just over a third of police forces in England and Wales this is likely to be only the tip of the iceberg.

 

One year on from revenge porn becoming a specific criminal offence under the Criminal Justice and Courts Act 2015 this timely symposium provides an invaluable opportunity for local authorities, police, legal practitioners, victim support services and other key stakeholders to review the new legislation and discuss further ways to tackle and deter ‘revenge pornography’.

Why Attend?

  • Understand new and existing legislation around revenge porn
  • Assess the impact of the new criminal offence and consider what more needs to be done to tackle revenge porn
  • Consider how to strengthen police and other front-line responses through better training and awareness
  • Examine how to best safeguard and support victims, provide legal advice and work with media companies to remove material
  • Explore how to change public attitudes, promote responsible use of technology and educate young people on respect, equality and consent in relationships
