The first woman has been prosecuted for posting private sexual photos of another woman under the new law against 'revenge porn'.

As a family lawyer, I have acted for as many men as I have women that have been victims of relationship abuse, and no doubt we will soon see the first reported case of 'revenge porn' against a man.

This new law is a welcomed and potent tool against this growing issue with the use of social media presenting a multitude of ways for abusers - male or female - to bully and intimidate their ex-partners.
