France Cracks Down on Sexual Harassment
Non means non! The French government is launching a new campaign against sexual harassment, reminding folks that pestering and violence toward women are crimes. This follows a recent poll revealing that 100 percent of French women reported being harassed on public transportation. An ad campaign will warn of potential prison sentences while encouraging bystanders to intervene. And a new emergency number, 3117, will enable the reporting of such behavior. The push, underway this autumn, will be bolstered by women identifying Metro areas where they feel the least safe.
