To ask Her Majesty's Government how many men (1) under the age of 18, and (2) aged 18 and above, referred to the Prevent programme held misogynistic beliefs, in each of the last five years.
22 April 2022
We do not record misogynistic views routinely, and therefore we are unable to analyse Counter-Terrorism Policing referral and Home Office Channel data to draw this out
Involuntary celibate (Incel) ideologies, which are commonly linked with misogyny, make up a small fraction of Prevent referrals. Because there are so few referrals, they are subsumed into the 'Other' category in the annual Prevent statistics – which covers numerous other ideologies and represents 3% of referrals altogether.
Whilst the requested information is not available, some information on individuals referred to and supported through the Prevent programme, including age, gender, and type of concern, is available publicly, which can be found on the Gov.uk website. Data is released annually, and data for 2020/2021 can be found here:
