Repeal the Slander of Women Act 1891
The big idea
Repeal the Slander of Women Act 1891, an archaic law based on Victorian morality.
Why does this matter?
The presumed reasons for the law – to protect the reputation of women – no longer apply within 21st century sexual morality, and it is against modern principles of gender equality to have legislation treating one gender different to the other. The undesired behaviour could presumably be restrained by other legal means.
