Make verbal Street Sexual Comments and Harassment a specific criminal offence

Petition Details

To make verbal street sexual comments and harassment a specific criminal offence, with significant penalties for offenders.

Additional Information

Many women and young girls are subjected to sexual comments on the streets, and harassed by men, who should face the full consequences of the law.

This type of behaviour is unacceptable, and the comments and harassment are/is uncalled for, unwanted, very disrespectful and degrading.

Being subjected to verbal sexual comments and harassment can cause emotional trauma to a person’s health and well-being.
