A UK politician has proposed installing a 6pm curfew for men to 'make women feel safer'.
The Green Party's Baroness Jones made the divisive suggestion in the House of Lords during a debate on domestic violence and reckons it would help 'lessen discrimination'.
The discussion comes amid the disappearance of Sarah Everard, a 33-year-old woman who vanished while walking from a friend's place in Clapham to her Brixton home at around 9:30pm.
Police have recently revealed human remains were found in Kent and they are being investigated to see whether they belong to the missing woman.
Everard's case has ignited a national discussion on women's safety, with some commentators blaming her for being alone at night.
Those comments have been criticised up and down the UK and many say women should be allowed to feel safe wherever they are.
Baroness Jones told the House of Lords: "In the week that Sarah Everard was abducted and, we suppose, killed - because remains have been found in a woodland in Kent - I argue that, at the next opportunity for any Bill that is appropriate, I might put in an amendment to create a curfew for men on the streets after 6 pm.
"I feel this would make women a lot safer, and discrimination of all kinds would be lessened."
The proposal also comes after London Police allegedly issued a warning for women to stay indoors at night to avoid becoming a victim in the wake of Sarah's disappearance.
The Sun heard from people in the area near where Sarah vanished, who reported police telling them to remain inside and be vigilant.
Baroness Jones said she copped a hell of a lot of abuse after she made her proposal in the House of Lords.
Writing on Twitter, the politician said: "Since my comments about a curfew for men to keep women safe, I've had a deluge of misogynistic emails and tweets. Which rather proves my point about the problem being with men..."
If you think Ms Jones' proposal would never happen, think again.
Back in 2001, Bogota in Colombia introduced a city-wide, voluntary curfew for men and told women to hit the town and leave their male partners at home.
It was dubbed the 'Night Without Men', according to the Guardian, and was designed to cut down on street crime and domestic violence in the country's capital.
Male police officers and fire fighters were offered to have the night off while women filled the gaps, including Col Gloria Cardilla who took over police chief Jorge Enrique Lenaris' job for the occasion.
Even pizza delivery joints gave out discounts to men who were ordering food from home.
