Shana Grice, 19 years old, was murdered by her ex-boyfriend.

She had reported his abusive stalking of her repeatedly to police. The police fined her for wasting their time and treated her reports with skepticism.

Thankfully, the ex-boyfriend was found guilty and is now serving a life sentence.

But this case just goes to show how little women can reply on the police to take them seriously. The judge criticised the police for their attitude towards her and for stereotyping her. How many more women need to die before we are taken seriously and afforded the rights and protection that we deserve?
