Sexual harassment of women and girls in public places inquiry

The Women and Equalities Committee launches a new inquiry into sexual harassment of women and girls in public places. The Committee held a one-off evidence session on women's experiences of everyday sexism and sexual harassment in December 2017, following the emergence of widespread allegations in the UK and US about sexual assault and harassment across a wide range of sectors. MPs now want to focus on women and girls' experiences of sexual harassment in public places: on the street, on public transport, in shopping areas, in bars and clubs and in other public areas. The Committee is inviting written evidence up to 5 March.
