Every woman in Paris polled in survey has experienced sexual harassment on trains

Parisians are calling on the government to combat sexual harassment on public transport after a poll shows that 100 per cent of the women said they experienced at least one incident.

Shocking results show that each of the 600 women surveyed said that they were subjected to sexually-motivated abuse by strangers on trains and the Metro at some point in their lives, according to news website The Local.

    So you’re saying is they got exactly what they voted for?

      I would consider moving to France if sexual harassment was literally a ballot line item. They got fairly close with Dominique Strauss Khan.

  • Hard Little Machine

    100% of everyone has also experienced a distinct lack of personal hygiene on Paris trains.

    I never stand on the edge of the platform It’s too easy for an arm to come out of the crowd and shove you onto the tracks when the train is coming.

    Crowded public transit is a paradise for creepy frotteur fetishists.

    The Japanese know this very well…

    Some old woman said something mean to a hijabi on a train in Syndey. Luckily a gobby yob was there so they could yell at each other. She is now an hero.
