Helen Steel – Special Award Winner – 2017

Helen Steel is one of eight women who together brought a ground-breaking civil claim against the Metropolitan police for their abusive practice of enabling undercover police officers to form long term intimate relationships with the women they were spying on. Helen was pivotal in organising the claimants, waived her anonymity and gave press interviews in order to ensure maximum media coverage, and has always been insistent on highlighting the police abuse as a form of violence against women.
