Islamophobia is a unique form of Gendered Violence. 60% of MEND Islamophobia Response Unit (IRU) hate crime reports come from Muslim women. The number rises to 80% when just looking at physical assaults. Usually, these attacks on individuals have ripple effects within the family and wider community, which may lead to behavioral changes. MEND in collaboration with victim support organised an interactive and informative workshop, covering possible behavioral changes, practical tips on how victims can report Islamophobic hate crimes that are faced by especially women and what witnesses of hate crime can do.
