Cabinet members are due to report on work done to tackle violence against women and girls in the borough.

Camden's full council meeting on Monday (January 24) will hear updates on work currently being carried out to keep women safe.

Cllr Angela Mason, lead for best start in life and families and Cllr Nadia Shah, who heads safer communities, will submit their report.

In November the council took part in the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence – an international, annual campaign.

At the same time a campaign was launched to seek to make misogyny as a hate  crime to coincide with White Ribbon Day and the sixteen days of activism

On December 3 Cllr Shah arranged a borough-wide walkabout, focusing on women’s safety.

Residents shared their experiences of known risks and issues within the borough, and identified specific areas in which they feel unsafe.
