Jess Phillips reads lists of UK women killed in last year

In a debate of International Women’s Day, a Labour MP has listed all women killed in the UK over the last year where a man has been convicted or charged.

Jess Phillips told Parliament that “killed women are not vanishingly rare, killed women are common”.

The Birmingham Yardley MP was given dispensation by the deputy Speaker to break time limits to read the list of victims.

She ended with the name of Sarah Everard who disappeared a week ago. In that case, a man is being questioned on suspicion of murder.
