MP Jess Phillips reads the names of UK women killed by men in the last year – BBC News

Labour MP Jess Phillips listed all women killed in the UK over the last year where a man has been convicted or charged, in a debate to mark International Women’s Day.

She told Parliament that “killed women are not vanishingly rare, killed women are common”.

The Birmingham Yardley MP was given dispensation by the deputy Speaker to break time limits to read the list of victims.

She ended with the name of Sarah Everard, who disappeared a week ago, for which a serving male police officer is being questioned on suspicion of murder.
