Johnson: UK needs cultural change after woman's murder

Johnson said on Wednesday (March 17) there needed to be a cultural change in attitudes in Britain towards women after the murder of Londoner Sarah Everard prompted a debate over how the country deals with male violence against women.

During the weekly Prime Minister's Questions session, Starmer called the murder a "watershed moment" that demanded cross-party support to achieve cultural change.

A serving police officer is set to go on trial in October accused of the kidnap and murder of Everard, whose killing sparked anger and soul-searching about what police, government and society can do to stop male violence against women.

The 33-year-old was abducted as she walked home from a friend's house in south London on March 3, with her body later found in woodland around 50 miles away in southeast England.
