The Government is committed to securing justice for all victims, both male and female, and applies policies fairly and equally. In September 2016, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) published its first ever public statement recognising the needs and experiences of male victims of offences including rape, domestic abuse, harassment, and stalking and child sexual abuse. In summer 2018, they will hold another forum with groups representing the interests of male victims to further explore the issues they face in relation to these offences. CPS Violence against Women and Girls policies are applied fairly and equitably to all perpetrators and victims of crime irrespective of their gender.
