Girls As Young As 10 Are Harassed, Followed and Touched – And It’s Not A Crime. Add Your Name if You Agree Public Sexual Harassment Should Be Illegal.

UPDATEThe Law Commission, a legal body which advises the government, has recommended that Government consider making public sexual harassment a crime! In order to get a new Public Sexual Harassment Law, we need to persuade the Prime Minister to finally take action - add your name to join the campaign!

In parks, university campuses, bus stops and high streets, girls across the UK are facing harassment every day. They’re being followed, shouted at, touched, groped and grabbed – and they want it to stop.

Girls are staying in, missing school, carrying keys between their fingers and avoiding exercise – all to shield themselves from the constant tide of public sexual harassment.

Harassment of girls is going unreported and unpunished: it’s time to make it a crime. That’s why we’re standing with sisters Gemma and Maya, from Our Streets Now, who are campaigning to make public sexual harassment a criminal offence.

Let's make this the generation to end the harassment of girls in public. Add your name now to join the #CrimeNotCompliment campaign.
