CHILD abuse survivor Sammy Woodhouse said she was “chuffed” to be nominated for an award that recognises women who work against male violence.
Sammy (pictured) – now a child sexual exploitation campaigner – is one of nine women on the shortlist for this year’s Emma Humphreys Memorial Prize.
The award is in its 20th year and judges said they had received more nominations than ever. A spokeswoman added: “The shortlisting process this year was particularly difficult.”
Sammy (33) helped expose the Rotherham abuse scandal and saw her abuser Arshid Hussain jailed for 35 years in February 2016.
