Halvparten av franske kvinner siger, at de vælger bukser fremfor skørt og tager en slør over kløften for at undgå uønsket opmærksomhed og pågående opførsel på offentlig transport, viser en ny rapport.

Den virkeligheten rapporten beskriver forbinder vi med Kairo, der kvinner blir antastet på åpen gate.

Hele 87 prosent siger, de har oplevet pågående opførsel på offentlig transport, varierende fra plystring til pågående spørgsmål, trusler og rene overgreb.

Som konsekvens kler kvinderne på sig, undgår tiderne hvor de er mest udsat, som rush og sene kvelder. Mange vælger at undgå offentlig transport.

One in two women in France will choose trousers over a skirt to avoid becoming the victim of sexual harassment on public transport, a new survey has revealed.

Not only that but nearly 90 percent of respondents say they have experienced harassment in some shape or form when on public transport.

According to a study of over 6,000 people by the National Federation of Association of Transport Users (Fnaut), women’s fear of harassment significantly changes their behaviour on public transport in France.

Some 48 percent of those questioned said they would change what they’re wearing when they travel by Metro, bus or train, opting for trousers or using a scarf to hide cleavage.

A similar amount said that they do not use public transport at certain times, especially in the evenings, to avoid harassment and 34 percent opt to cycle or take a taxi or car to avoid it all together.

Some 87 percent of women, a figure described as an “unfortunate reality” by Fnaut, have experienced harassment on public transport, including whistling or cat calling, intrusive questions, insults, threats and sexual assault.

I de fleste tilfeller har det vært vitner til overgrepene, men andre reisende griper ikke inn. De er passive vitner til det som skjer. Slik er de passive deltakere i en nedbryting av offentlig ro og orden.

Despite the fact that many of these reported cases (86 percent) in the study took place in the presence of witnesses, victims said that in the vast majority of cases (89 percent), no one stepped in to help.
