[100 word news] – ‘Entering public life as a woman makes you the target of the most sinister threats’, says Gina Miller

Anti-Brexit campaigner Gina Miller has spoken out about the abuse she has received since taking the government to court last year.

‘What I was not prepared for was the barrage of racial and sexist abuse I received’.

‘This was not the Great Britain I thought I lived in: the country viewed across the world as a bastion of inclusion, multiculturalism and civility. My experiences since then have showed me a Britain I do not recognise: a society where fear and hatred are poisoning debate, opinion, and freedom of speech’.

‘Entering public life as a woman – be it as a politician, journalist, expert or activist – makes you the target of the most sinister threats, abuse and language’.

‘I have lived in Britain for more than 40 years. I’m British, my children and husband are British. This is my home’.
