COMPARE and contrast the reporting on Jeremy Forrest, the teacher who went on the lam with his 15-year-old pupil and teacher Emily Fox, who had sexual relations with one of her 15-year-old pupils, a female.

The BBC on Jeremy Forrest:

The prosecution said Forrest, 30, of Petts Wood, south-east London, had groomed the pupil at Bishop Bell CofE School in Eastbourne where he taught…

The maths teacher was labelled a “paedophile” by the prosecution, who said he “groomed” the vulnerable teenager and his actions were a gross breach of trust.

And:

The trial has heard the pupil had just turned 15 when she started a sexual relationship with Forrest after developing a crush on him. Forrest would pick the girl up in her school uniform and they would have sex in his car, in hotels and at his marital home, the court heard.

Now look at the BBC’s report on Emily Fox., Like Forrest she has been jailed for her crimes.

Emily Fox, from Bath, pleaded guilty at St Albans Crown Court to four counts of sexual activity with a 15-year-old girl while in a position of trust.

Mentions of the word grooming: none.

Mentions of the girl’s school uniform: none.

Is it different for women?
