1 in 4 French Women Are Afraid On the Street Due to Sexual Harassment


According to TV5, a new disturbing study has revealed that the prevalence of sexual harassment isn't only high, it can lead to paralyzing fear for women.

Researchers from The National Institute of Statistics and Economics Studies found that 25% of women aged 18-29 reported being scared when they walked on the streets. They also discovered that 1 in 5 women have suffered from verbal harassment on the street, and 1 in 10 said they had been kissed or carressed against their consent.

A video created by a young Belgium young woman last year garnered a lot of attention on the topic of sexual harassment in Europe. Sadly, it doesn't seem that much has changed since.
