This is Lana Clarkson. She was killed by music producer Phil Spector. She’d met him only two hours earlier. Several women at both trials of Phil Spector described how he was abusive and known for “waving guns in people's faces”.

Quoted @SBSisters

We are alarmed at the Govt’s decision to fragment its approach to gender-based violence (GBV), by creating 2 separate strategies for Violence Against Women & Girls (VAWG) and Domestic Abuse (DA).

Important concerns abt govt's plans for separate VAWG & DA strategies raised by @SBSisters @AngelouCentre @Safety4Sisters & @lawrsuk. Separate VAWG & DA strategies risks reversing 10 yrs of a joined-up approach to tackling the multiple forms of violence that affect women everyday

1/4 Today I was attacked in Parliament by #LizTruss. Tho she can read a script, she misrepresents the point of my Guardian interview. Specifically, I argue that this Gov is intentionally driving a wedge between White working class & BAME working class. It's classic #DivideAndRule

Quoted @kelechnekoff

You can have a genuine concern about something you’ve been told about me and address it in a manner that is kind. That wasn’t what took place. Myself and the other people who would be talking during the segment could hear me being talked about like a dickhead.

I was also booked for @BBCWomansHour this AM and heard the appalling treatment @kelechnekoff was subjected to minutes b4 broadcast; it was really unfair and then led to a #MeToo discussion with no black woman's voice. Woman's Hour shd apologise to her and really must do better.

@bishopSarahM supports calls for further debate on how migrant women can be fully supported & shares concerns that the proposed pilot scheme, the existing DV Rule & DDVC do not provide sufficient support to many.

Important point from #BaronessMeacher re the #DABill - for it to comply with article 4.3 of the Istanbul Convention the Bill needs to ensure non-discrimination on any grounds incl immigration or refugee status #SUMW #ProtectionForAll

Great to hear #BaronessMeacher voice support for clauses relating to migrant women tabled in the Commons. These issues need to be revisited to ensure the #DABill offers equal #ProtectionForAll #SUMW
