In parks and university campuses, bus stops and our local 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.
This relentless harassment is holding girls back – impacting their mental health, restricting their freedom and making them feel unsafe. This has to end.
Harassment of girls is going unreported and unpunished: it’s time to make it a crime. That’s why Plan International UK are 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.
