France May Soon Make Asking Women Their Phone Number A CRIMINAL Offence

By 11:41 Thu, 21 Sep 2017 Comments

Wolf-Whistling is set to be banned in France as the government declares war on men hassling women in public. Under new plans bugging women for their telephone numbers and following them could also be prohibited.

The crackdown comes after surveys show virtually all French women have been harassed on public transport, in the street or elsewhere at some time.

France’s new leader, President Emmanuel Macron, has pledged to end this during his election campaign this year.

Only a few countries, including Belgium and Portugal, have banned such behaviour.
