‘It feels like a Chronic Illness’
Emily Maitlis is today’s Future Female, her 20 year ordeal of putting up with a stalker, now jailed for 4 years, shows extreme bravery, but it’s not over according to Maitless, speaking on the @5livesport @emmabarnett show yesterday. She also described her frustrations with the legal system and called for a new approach to treating stalkers.
Is this a gender issue? Are Women taken seriously enough when another human usually a male, invades their privacy with harassment? The perpetrator is a former friend from Maitlis’s university days, is this an added complexity, and works in favour of the stalker?
Why should Emily Maitliss be left feeling she will never be free of this man? Such a horrific thought.
Have you ever been stalked? And what’s your opinion, how can we change the system so Future Females don’t have to endure what Emily has or will?
