Who we are 

We are British victims of alleged rape and serious sexual and physical assaults by the social media influencer Andrew Tate.  Tate is believed to have raped and sexually assaulted at least seven women in the UK (including ourselves).

We are mothers, daughters, and sisters.

We could be your mother, daughter, or sister.

We must remain anonymous for our own safety, and because of the harassment we have suffered in the past.

We need your help. 

Our Story

In 2014, we filed criminal complaints against Tate with the UK authorities for rape and physical abuse, which were supported by witness testimony and damning documentary evidence.

In 2019, after multiple delays, the criminal proceedings stalled, and no action was taken.  This potentially negligent conduct allowed Tate to flee to Romania in 2017. 

Tate was arrested in Romania in 2022, where he is being prosecuted for rape, human trafficking (including children), and forming a gang to sexually exploit women.

Our Objectives

  • To bring Tate to justice in the UK for his alleged crimes.

  • To bring an end to the online and in-real-life spread of Tate's misogynistic doctrine amongst vulnerable young men and boys and the harm it causes women and girls.

  • To hold the UK authorities to account for their failure to bring Tate to justice in 2019 when they had the opportunity to do so, leaving him free to commit further offences against women and cause incalculable societal harm through the online and in-real-life spread of his misogynistic message. 

Why This Is Urgent

Tate is on bail and allowed to travel freely within Romania. It would not be difficult for him to smuggle himself across the border.  Indeed, several high-profile suspects have fled Romania this way before they can be convicted.

There is evidence that Tate plans to flee Romania before his trial.

Should he flee, it is feared his influence will only grow, and he may go on to commit further crimes against women and others.

He must be brought to justice in the UK. 

What we are Raising Money for

  • Advocate and lobby for Hertfordshire Constabulary to reopen what is believed to have been its ineffective criminal investigation into our criminal complaints.

  • Advocate and lobby for the Crown Prosecution Service to reconsider its decision in 2019 not to prosecute Tate following the suspected ineffective investigation by Hertfordshire Constabulary.

  • Advocate and lobby for a government or parliamentary inquiry into why Hertfordshire Constabulary and the CPS refused our requests in 2023 to, respectively, reopen the investigation and reconsider the decision not to prosecute.

  • Pursue civil proceedings against Tate in the High Court in London for damages.

  • Work with parliamentarians, legislators, educators, and civil society to combat the spread online and in real life of Tate's misogynistic doctrine amongst vulnerable young men and boys and the consequential harm it has caused women and girls.

Our initial funding target is £50,000 to initiate legal proceedings and finally hold Tate accountable for his actions

Campaign Successes To Date 

Since our campaign began, we have succeeded in: 

  • Securing a pronouncement from Minister of Policing Chris Philp, encouraging Hertfordshire Constabulary to reopen its investigation.

  • Serving Tate at his home in Romania with a pre-action letter putting him on notice of civil proceedings being brought against him in the UK. 

  • Identifying Tate’s online business, The Real World, as a pyramid scheme and secured the removal of its application from the Apple App Store at an estimated cost to Tate of $167 million per year in lost revenue.

  • Notifying the UK authorities of suspicions that Tate intended to flee Romania, which resulted in their decision, a week later, to request his extradition to the UK based on criminal complaints by other UK women to Bedfordshire Constabulary

These successes are just the tip of the iceberg.  While the recent extradition request was a success, it is not guaranteed.  With your help, we can continue our fight. 

Our Lawyers 

We have instructed leading human rights lawyers and public-interest litigators, McCue Jury & Partners, who have agreed to represent us on a non-profit basis.  

Your donations will be used to build the strongest possible case and advocate for the reopening of the criminal investigation. We will also ask the UK Government to launch an inquiry into the original investigation's failures so that we can prevent this from happening again.  Your contribution will provide essential resources, support services, and legal assistance. We cannot do this without you. 

Please donate what you can.  Every contribution helps.  

Thank you for being a part of this.

8 May - Proceedings served on Andrew Tate at his premises in Romania

Dear Supporters,

We have a very important update for you regarding our case.

Thanks to your continued support, our lawyers served Andrew Tate with our civil proceedings on 8 May at his premises in Romania. 

Following the service of our letter before action on Tate last year, our claim has now been issued by the High Court in London. We have also served Tate with an Order granted by the Court protecting our anonymity. The Court agreed that it is necessary to protect us from possible harassment and abuse by Tate and his followers.

This is a monumental step in our case as it means that the litigation against Tate for the allegations we are bringing against him for rape and physical assault has formally begun.

The next steps for our case are for our lawyers to draft a document called the “Particulars of Claim”, detailing all the allegations the four of us are making against him. Shortly after this, Tate must file his Defence stating whether he admits liability or, if not, why not. The case is then likely to proceed through the Court.

We cannot thank you enough for supporting our fight for justice. This is not just about us but about all women who have suffered at the hands of sexual violence.

We need you more than ever to continue standing by our side and to help us raise money so that our lawyers can proceed to the next stage in our case.

We look forward to providing you with the next update in our case.

With very best wishes,

Victims and survivors of Andrew Tate
