David Carrick’s conviction of 85 serious offenses, including 48 rape charges, led to a long-awaited sentencing of a minimum 30 years.

It is unacceptable that despite several women coming forward to report him, Carrick was allowed to remain a police officer for over 17 years and manipulate his power by explicitly warning his victims that no one would believe them due to his rank.

This case unfortunately does not stand alone, and women continue to suffer because of the misogynistic attitudes rife within the Metropolitan Police. IKWRO calls for an end to all misogyny, especially within the Police Force.

We stand with the brave survivors and their families and will continue to campaign for the right of every woman and girl to live free from abuse.
