Wolf-Whistling And Street Harassment Allegeldy To Become illegal In France

Wolf-whistling and other street harassment should be turned into a criminal offence, says France’s gender equality minister.


The country’s new gender equality minister Marlene Schiappa has called for proper legislation to ‘frame the situation’ of street harassment so it’s taken seriously.

Schiappa, a 34-year-old feminist and mum-of-two, has set up a parliamentary working party aimed at changing the law.

‘We’re in a grey zone,’ said Ms Schiappa. ‘Nowadays, when a woman is whistled at in the street, insulted or followed, that’s not classed as an assault or harassment because there are no elements of proof.

‘There is no point filing a complaint against X because the details are not sufficient. It’s absolutely necessary to frame the situation and to get rid of the definition of harassment that we have today.’

Ms Shiappaa it right though.
Not only Agberos and random idiots are guilty, but also those IBM boys in local markets.

This should be in Nigeria too especially when you go to yaba markets or this broad street, mandilas side, you go hear wolf whistling tire.

2 nights ago when I was coming back from the office due to foolish hold up caused by tankers and co. It was like 10.00 p.m., the glass of my window at passenger seat was not up just half, getting close to my gate, i just heard whistling as if someone is calling a bingo, whistling just to get my attention and it was just a foolish man.
