  1. Pete Davidson took a dig at Kanye West during his weekend?s 'Netflix Is A Joke Festival'
  2. If you thought moral and fashion policing only happens to women in India, you are highly mistaken. Some men go through the same thing, at least regularly even if not on a daily basis. From a common man being denied entry at a bank for wearing shorts to an athlete being trolled for wearing cargo pants for his meeting with the Indian Army officials, men too are shamed for their attire. © iStock The recent incident shared by a Bengaluru techie and the comments on his post is proof enough. He took to Twitter to share how he went to the RTO office wearing shorts for which he was harassed by the officer and even denied services. “I was harassed by a RTO official because I went to the RTO office in shorts. The guy said he wouldn’t see my case because I was wearing shorts. Can’t seem to understand this crass behavior,” he wrote. © iStock He said that the RTO officials at Jnanabharathi got irritated and started arguing with him. “They insisted they will not share any details just because I was wearing shorts,” he told TOI. There is no written dress code for government offices as such and most of us waltz in banks and officers on a lazy afternoon wearing casual clothes. However, the officials at the RTO got offended on seeing a man in shorts. Last I checked, men’s shorts (not boxers, obviously) aren't inappropriate attire and an acceptable clothing item to wear in public. © iStock However, many men in the comment section said the same thing had happened to them at the RTO, passport office and other public service officers where they were shamed and denied service pertaining to their “inappropriate” outfit. During passport police verification, constables at Yeshvantpur Police station did not allow me inside because I was wearing shorts. https://t.co/8WXU3pz4wC — Ashwin Deshpande (@trollpwnde) January 18, 2022I remember "travel docs processing dept " of one of the companies that I worked for didn't accept visa document from my colleague because he came to office in chappal to submit document .. It happens.. — Ananth Kumar (@anantkkumar) January 18, 2022It’s some archaic rule they follow. Husband also got ticked off by the lady at the entrance “illi ella Knicker hakondu barakagalla”. He tried explaining to her that he even goes to office like that. She wasn’t impressed at all. — Loveleen Arun (@LoveleenArun) January 18, 2022My brother's DL test was cancelled because while talking to rto he 2as wearing sunglasses — Nikhil Kulkarni (@nikhilkulkwadhe) January 18, 2022The inspector who was supposed to take my DL test failed me at first because I came dressed in shorts. Couldn't exactly argue, so I remember driving early in the morning to find somewhere I could buy trackpants. This was at the KR Puram RTO in 2020. — Rithwik/ (@thel3l) January 19, 2022Same thing happened to me in 2016 I was in shorts too https://t.co/RsR06K7oIk — Suhas Ravindra (@SuhasRavindra1) January 18, 2022 Some people argued that since it is a government office, you need to dress in proper attire to show them respect. While we agree to it, how fair is it to deny them service or cancel their documents on this basis when there is no such dress code for citizens in writing? © iStock Yesterday it was a woman’s saree that was being deemed inappropriate in an Indian restaurant, and now, it’s men’s ‘shorts’ and ‘chappals’. Someone, please create a nationally acceptable dress code for public places so we can dress accordingly! View the full article
  3. Four men enter Sarina Isa's house in Karachi; two claim to be from intelligence agency, while others from Interior Ministry
  4. Let’s face it, no matter how much one says that laws have been put in place to protect citizens’ interest, with the amount of corrupt cops and red-tapism going around, they are being used more to exploit people than protect them. © iStock And one of the major reasons why this happens is because we as citizens are a lot less aware about rights and laws of our country as we should be. Which is why a lot of men end up getting rattled or bending under duress by intimidating police officers, especially when they’re out on dates. Here are a few legal rights that every man must be aware of, to avoid getting exploited by police or anyone else for that matter - 1) Police Can’t Refuse To Lodge Your FIR © Phantom Films Under no circumstances can the police refuse to file your FIR if you ever wish to lodge it. In fact, a police officer that denies doing so by giving any excuse, is liable to be suspended or even serving a sentence in jail. 2) Police Is ALWAYS On Duty © iStock No matter if the police officer is wearing a uniform or not, he/she cannot refuse to help you out by saying ‘I am not on duty’. By law, a police officer is always on duty and has to help you out in case of a crime being committed or addressing a complaint. 3) Police Can Arrest You For Drunken Driving © iStock If at all the police finds more than 30mg of alcohol per 100ml in your bloodstream, it is entitled to arrest you, without even needing a warrant. 4) Traffic Police Cannot Confiscate Your Vehicle Keys © iStock The traffic police do not have the right to snatch away or confiscate your car/bike keys. In case they do that, you retain the right to launch a legal proceeding against the officer. 5) Showing RC/License Digitally Through DigiLocker Works © Twitter It is allowed for any person to show his car papers, license, pollution or even insurance digitally through an app called Digi-lock and doesn’t necessarily have to show the original hard copy to the police. 6) Women Can Refuse To Go To The Police Station Between 6pm To 6am © Rising Sun Films If you are accompanied by a woman, no police officer can force her to visit the police station after 6 PM or before 6 AM. The woman can simply deny coming to the station after sunset and can also be only arrested by a female police officer. The only exception to this is if the police bring a written permit from the magistrate to arrest the lady. 7) Police Can’t Force/Threaten To Call Your Cops © iStock Unless you’re a minor and have been apprehended by the police on suspicion of doing something unlawful, police cannot threaten you to call your parents under any given circumstances. They are not entitled to reach out to your family if you’re a major. 8) Live-In Relationships Are Not Illegal © Maddock Films In India, live-in relationships are not illegal as long as it is between two consenting adults. No police-officer or fellow acquaintance can harass you for living with your partner. In fact, children born out of such live-in relationships also have a similar kind of a right on their parents’ property. 9) Police Can Arrest You For Obscene Activity Done In Public © iStock Kissing openly or even in your own car can be grounds for you to get arrested under violation of the Indian Penal Code, for the IPC prohibits indulging in any obscene activity in public places. However, if your car is parked in your private property i.e house parking, private garage or home grounds, then you cannot be booked for the same. View the full article
  5. Controversy could easily be the middle name of every person in the Bollywood film industry, more so the actors and actresses, who are often judged and kept a close eye on by the fans. From their choice of clothes to their choice of films, everything is scrutinised and most times, it isn’t in a great light. One such actress who was type-caste as soon as she entered the industry was the actress Mallika Sherawat who rose to fame with her hit film Murder. © Vishesh Films The actress recently got candid in an interview and shared that her decision to leave the country for a while came after being bullied by a certain section of the media and press, that would go ahead and describe her as a ‘fallen woman’. Sharing her two cents on how she feels that it is only in the past couple of years that people have grown more tolerant and understanding towards Bollywood films and their content, she shared how it wasn’t so when she started out. View this post on Instagram “There was a lot of judgement, that ‘she has no morals’, ‘she is a fallen woman’, ‘look at the kinds of scenes she does, she wears a bikini, kisses on screen’. But it’s all a part of the experience, and I’m really happy that there has been a lot of growth in society. People have become more tolerant. Today frontal nudity is no big deal…,” Sherawat said. She then went on to disclose that, “A certain section of the media was very… They bullied me and harassed me. And that really bothered me, because… And most of them were women. Men have never had problems with me. Men have always appreciated me. And I couldn’t understand why these women are so against me, and so nasty to me. And that made me leave the country for a while because I wanted a break. But today they are more accepting of me, and they are more loving, which I’m really enjoying.” In fact, only recently the actress shared how a critic in the industry once compared her to a pornstar. She shared, “There was one critic who compared me to a pornstar and said Mallika is a pornstar. I don't have anything against them, it is not a judgement on them(the porn industry). But this is what the critics were writing, this is the low level they dropped into." View this post on Instagram The actress is now set to make her comeback with MX Players’s original series Nakaab where she will be seen playing the role of the dominating and power-hungry ‘Zohar Mehta’.

  6. Police yet to catch culprit; two suspects sent for identification parade; four arrested in total
  7. Rawalpindi woman says she had reported Usman Mirza to FIA's cybercrime wing, but no action was taken
  8. Kevin Spacey was sued by the company as they claimed that his sexual misconduct largely devalued the show
  9. The pandemic has been one of the worst things people have had to survive through. The lockdown resulted in a massive number of people left with no jobs, no way of earning and a bleak future. In the toughest of times, a lot of people resorted to selling something from home just to survive and mostly, that included cooking and selling food to earn money. One such new business venture was started by Sajana Shaji, a transwoman from Kochi, Kerala. Starting her own biryani business, she took out loans from grocery stores and meat shops to cook and sell the dish. Even though she was struggling herself, she managed to offer employment to four other transwomen, two women, and a few youths who had lost their jobs due to COVID-19. A wholesome endeavour, right? People coming together and working hard during a pandemic. © Facebook But nope, how can we forget where we live. Her thriving business started going downhill after a few local shopkeepers started harassing her and the entire group, turning away potential customers by lying about the food quality. If that wasn't awful enough, a group of people even beat up and abused Sanjana. A teary-eyed Sanjana shared a video on Facebook talking about all the harassment and abuse she had faced in the last month and how the loss of business resulted in a lot of wasted food and not enough profits. In her Live video, she said, "Look at the amount of food that has gone to waste. People keep asking us to work and live a decent life, instead of begging on trains and roaming the streets at night. But if the society does not allow us to work respectfully, then what are we supposed to do." Her venture went from selling 300 packets of biryani a day to just 20 and it's heartbreaking to see a group of hardworking people not being able to earn their well-deserved money. © Facebook Talking about how the police didn't help much, she said, "We asked the police to come to the place and intervene. They said they cannot come now and that they would come in the evening. When we asked what we were to do with the wasted biriyani, the Sub Inspector of the station callously told us to do whatever we wanted with it." Recalling the harrowing harassment she and one of her coworkers faced, she said, "We used up all our savings including the money I had set aside for my surgery to start this biriyani business. I kept thinking that earning a living was more important and that surgery came later. But now I have no means to continue the business. My associate Theertha, a transwoman who had just undergone surgery was touched inappropriately. He used a lot of sexist slurs against us when we confronted him." They have not done a single thing wrong - worked to earn money, started selling something people seemed to be enjoying, just trying to make ends meet - and yet, there are people out there who feel entitled to go and cause disruptions for them. © Facebook Thankfully, the video went viral and support started pouring in from everywhere. With her tough situation getting a better platform, the police have been active and taking the case seriously. © Facebook You don't need to understand the language to feel the pain.

  10. Group of 10 young men followed, harassed students travelling in a car; even managed to force them to stop at one point
  11. Bollywood actor-dancer Nora Fatehi recently got harassed by a large mob of fans outside a church on Christmas Eve. The actor was seen getting pushed by eager fans as she made her way to the church with her co-star Varun Dhawan in a video that is going viral on the web of late. Nora and Varun were taken aback by the plethora of crowd gathered to catch a glimpse of their favourite stars when they reached the church. Nora got harassed by fans wanting to click just one selfie with her while her guards and security staff attempted to keep the mob at bay. Nora and Varun will be sharing screen space in Remo D'Souza's Street Dancer3D.
  12. When the 'Time's Up' movement started, people really meant that. Time is literally up when it comes to tolerating any kind of sexual misconduct and harassment. A lot of people have been getting away for so long, but no more. One after another, everyone is getting exposed and well, it was about time. The first thing that has been confirmed after the 'Me Too' and 'Time's Up' movement is that the entire world is filled with sleazeballs who don't know the meaning of consent. The second is that, almost always, it's the person you least expect it to be and this couldn't have been truer for Alok Nath. I mean, the guy was basically known for his 'sanskaars' more than anything and even became a meme because of it. But obviously, after the recent developments, everyone knows that the 'sanskaars' he has in particular, no one should ever have those. © Twitter He has already been accused of rape by filmmaker Vinta Nanda and now, another woman from the film industry has come forward to share her account of the sexual harassment she faced, proving that workplace sexual harassment is one of the biggest concerns right now. Actress Sandhya Mridul shared her personal experience of working with Alok Nath back in the day, with HuffPost India. FYI, keep in mind this happened at the very start of her career and she has been working since 1994, so Alok Nath has been getting away with this for more than two decades. In truth & solidarity. I'm with you @vintananda #metoo pic.twitter.com/ZoiT2dT3yL — Sandhya Mridul (@sandymridul) October 10, 2018 She said, “At the very start of my career, I was shooting a telefilm in Kodaikanal. I was the lead. And very excited. Alok Nath was my on-screen father and Reema Lagoo my mother. Alok Nath was very impressed with me and called me "God's own child" and openly praised me every day. I was over the moon. I was a huge fan of this wonderful Babuji... I felt so fortunate happy and confident. Till one night after an early pack up. The cast went out for dinner. At dinner, he got progressively drunk and started insisting I sit with him and that I belonged to him and other stuff that I don't clearly remember but it made me very nervous and uncomfortable. My co-star realised what was happening and got me out of there. We went back to the hotel without dinner. It was late and I was back in my room and the costume dada came to my room to give me my clothes for the next day as I had a very early call time. Few minutes after he left there was a knock on my door I opened the door thinking it was him again...it was an inebriated Alok Nath. I instinctively tried to shut the door but he pushed it and lunged at me, I stepped aside he went flying past me into the room...I fell back toward the bathroom door he lunged at me again screaming 'I want you you're mine'...I dodged again, he went into the bathroom and I think I latched the loo door and ran out of my room down the corridor into the lobby. Fortunately, my DoP was there making a call from the reception. He came back to my room and what ensued was traumatic because a belligerent Alok Nath refused to leave...kept screaming shouting threatening abusing trying to grab me...but at some point, we managed to make him leave. The hairdresser was called and made to sleep in my room, I was so shaken up. In a few hours, I had scenes with Bauji, in one I had to sit on his lap and cry. I still feel nauseous when I think of it. It didn't stop there...every evening he would drink and every night calls were made to my room. I dreaded the ring...I had to keep it off the hook most of the times. But then he would come calling. It was a catch 22 situation. I had the hairdresser moved into my room permanently. I was a nervous wreck.” â¦I'm so sorry â¦@sandymridulâ© for what you have been through. I can imagine how traumatising even narrating back this ordeal must be. Thankyou for sharing this. You empower many to speak up. #TimesUp #MeTooIndia https://t.co/ndu5oHGbGQ — Mumbai Ki Rani (@mymalishka) October 10, 2018 It got so bad, she fell ill because of the constant stress. She went on, “A few days later I got very sick & was laid up and couldn't shoot. The stress had broken me. He continued to traumatise me with calls. And knocks. The hairdresser would answer. One day when he landed up at the door and cried and begged to be allowed in to apologise...I couldn't take it anymore. I told her to accompany him in...he pulled a chair next to my bed and howled. Said he was an alcoholic and that he had destroyed everything, his family his marriage, everything, and I was like his daughter and he respected me and that he was very sorry. He says he had learnt his lesson and that he would go to therapy and change it all. I finally broke my silence. I screamed, shouted, cried and it was done. I believed him. I had to. He left. He got away. I don't know how I shot with him for the remaining days and weeks. I'm grateful to my co-actors, my DOP & especially the late Reema Lagoo for finally taking him on & protecting me like a mother from then on. But it was too late. The damage was done. A very disillusioned, disgraced & unsure me returned home. He went on to return to Bombay and tell people I was difficult and arrogant. All apologies forgotten. He was a popular man, I was a newbie. He laid the foundation that others like him built on. All those who heard 'No'. Attitude my biggest crime. The deal breaker. Mr. Alok Nath. You know this to be true. As do few others.” Terrifying account of sexual assault & harassment by Alok Nath — this time by @SandyMridul, a wonderful actor we simply don't see enough on screen. https://t.co/SHZGD6wK2e — Shiv Aroor (@ShivAroor) October 10, 2018 She went on to talk about the other accusation he's facing, saying, “I had to forgive you for myself then and for my sanity but I will never forgive you for what you did with Vinta. Whom I have always respected and loved. I stand by you Vinta. What I went through is nothing compared to you. I'm so sorry. More power to you. To us all. I'm certain there are others. I urge you to come forward. “Your time is up Sir”.” After sharing her account, she also talked about the war against sexual harassment that's going on right now. She said, “The problem is sexual harassment has been open to interpretation. I come from a time when nobody wanted to hear. I was a nobody. When I tried to speak I was labelled arrogant and difficult. And replaced from work. And there was no social media to make ourselves heard, directly. It's taken me years to lay those demons to rest and move on. And just stay away from it all. But it never actually goes away. Does it? I do little work because I do it with people I trust. And those who respect me. My choices. I felt I had two choices then. One, to fight for work or two to preserve my dignity. And stay away from the conflict, the ugliness and embarrassment to me and my family. Which to me meant silence. I chose the latter. At that point. It's way different now, they know me so I'm spared. From abuse. And from work. Even though I managed to escape or prevent it somehow and it never reached the point where I was assaulted physically. My soul was. My creativity was. My career was. But I stood my ground. As shaky as it got. My bold bindaas badass image comes from there. But nobody wanted to work with "such a woman." Yes, I was told that. On many occasions. My career was set in stone. What Tanushree has started is admirable. I'm happy now women can speak go on social media. So, there's that platform. And it's pretty powerful. I believe. We have a voice finally. I have a lot more to say. But it's been buried so long. I need to dig up what I buried. For that, I need more courage and clarity. I need time. Yes, some of us need time. To dig into the shame and darkness we've buried to be able to work with strength and dignity. I'm work in progress. And where do I begin? So much happened that I can't remember. And the worst part is I don't have evidence anymore. Except for me. But I stand with Tanushree. And Vinta. And every woman. Who has been through this & will follow suit and break her silence. We have a voice. I'd like to tell all the newcomers that they should use it. Correctly. Honestly. Wisely. Fearlessly. Don't be ashamed. Don't be scared. Don't bury. Don't let it fester. And corrode your soul. Let's Speak. Let's keep this fire going. #TimesUp” Source – HuffPost India

  16. The Pakistani High Commission has taken up the matter with the Indian government Staff at the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi have complained of being harassed in their host country, diplomatic sources told Geo News. The diplomats also complained of their families being harassed. According to sources, a car carrying unaccompanied underage children of a diplomat was made to stop on a busy main road in the Indian capital on Tuesday, the children were forcefully made to disembark and harassed by unknown individuals. The diplomat's daughter, according to sources, is still traumatized by the ordeal. In another incident, the vehicle of another senior counsellor was forcefully stopped by an unknown individual who then disembarked and took pictures of the counsellor. Tuesday's incidents are not the first, rather, a continuing trend that started last week on Wednesday when a senior diplomats vehicle was stopped and damaged. The following day the Deputy High Commissioners' vehicle was chased by unknown individuals in a car and on a motorbike, who dragged the driver out of the car and hurled abuses at him. In another incident on Thursday, the minister political of the Pakistan High Commission was chased and his car was damaged by unknown individuals. The very next day on Friday, Pakistan's High Commissioner raised the issue with the Indian Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) and met with the MEA Joint Secretary about the incidents. Following the meeting, instead of the incidents stopping, two counsellors of the Pakistani mission were harassed in a similar manner. Pakistan High Commission again raised the issue with the MEA. After the latest incidents, the Pakistani High Commission has once again taken up the matter with the Indian government. Tensions between the two countries flared up after India accused Pakistan of involvement in attacks on its military posts in a bordering town ? an accusation Pakistan strongly denies.
  17. Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj Dec 28, 2017. Photo: RSTV NEW DELHI: India?s External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj alleged on Thursday that spy Kulbhushan Jadhav?s family was harassed while they were visiting him in Pakistan. Swaraj, speaking in the Indian parliament after submitting a report on the meeting, claimed that the visit was used by Pakistan for propaganda purposes. On December 25, Jadhav?s mother and wife met him at the Pakistani Foreign Office in Islamabad. The meeting was allowed by Pakistan on humanitarian grounds. According to Swaraj, Jadhav?s family was harassed and the spy?s wife and mother were shown as widows by removing their mangalsutras, bindiyas and bangles. Kulbhushan Jadhav confessed to family about being an Indian spy and terrorist Jadhav admitted he was an Indian spy and had engineered a spate of terror attacks on Pakistani soil Moreover, Swaraj said if there was a camera in Jadhav's wife?s shoes, it should have been shown to the media. Jadhav confessed to his role as an Indian spy and terrorist during the recent meeting with his mother and wife at Pakistan Foreign Office, according to reports in the Indian media. During the meeting with his mother Avanti and wife Chetna on December 25 in Islamabad, Jadhav admitted he was an Indian spy and had engineered a spate of terror attacks on Pakistani soil, the Times of India reported. "But why are you saying all this? You were doing business in Iran from where you were abducted. You must tell the truth," his mother grilled him after Jadhav greeted the two women by confessing that he was, as his charge sheet read, indeed an Indian spy and a terrorist. The meeting lasted almost 40 minutes, the Pakistan Foreign Office said. Indian diplomats, including Deputy High Commissioner JP Singh, accompanied Jadhav's family and were present during the meeting, which was conducted in a specially prepared room via an intercom through a glass partition. Pakistan grants consular access to Jadhav The mother and wife of the arrested Indian spy will arrive in Pakistan today ICJ proceedings On April 10, 2017, Pakistan sentenced the RAW agent to death for carrying out espionage and sabotage activities in Balochistan and Karachi. In a reaction to the move, Pakistan?s relations with neighbouring India tensed, and New Delhi approached the ICJ to hear the case. On May 18, the ICJ ordered Pakistan to halt the execution of Jadhav until a final decision was made in the proceedings. India then moved the ICJ to give it six months to file pleadings in the case, which the United Nations? judicial organ had turned down in June this year. Later, New Delhi submitted its memorial (arguments) to the ICJ on September 13. On December 13, Pakistan submitted its reply to the ICJ, dismissing India's stance in the case of the convicted spy. In its counter-memorial, Pakistan stated that Jadhav is not an ordinary person as he had entered the country with the intent of spying and carrying out sabotage activities. The reply also stated that Jadhav, who was a serving officer of the Indian Navy, does not fall under the purview of the Vienna Convention. The case remains sub judice. Arrest, confession, sentencing Jadhav alias Hussein Mubarak Patel, was arrested on March 3, 2016 in a ?counter-intelligence operation? from Mashkel area of Balochistan for his involvement in espionage and sabotage activities in Pakistan. Indian reply on Jadhav's matter received, under consideration: FO Pakistan had earlier proposed that the spy's wife be allowed to visit her husband The incarcerated RAW agent, in his video statement, confessed to involvement in sabotage and espionage inside Pakistan, which has also been the crux of Islamabad?s case in the ICJ. On April 10, a Field General Court Martial ? under the Pakistan Army Act, 1952, and Official Secrets Act, 1923 ? awarded death sentence to Jadhav for espionage and sabotage. Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa ratified the sentencing by the army tribunal. Jadhav has since been on the death row.
  18. European Parliament member Terry Reintke holds a placard ? displaying the rallying hashtag #MeToo for victims of sexual harassment and misconduct ? in Strasbourg, France, October 25, 2017. REUTERS/Christian Hartmann/Files LONDON: More than 220,000 women were sexually harassed on public transport in France over two years, the national crime statistics agency said in its first report on the subject, describing it as a ?conservative estimate?. The Harvey Weinstein scandal in the United States has accelerated a rethink of attitudes toward sexual harassment in France, a country that cherishes its self-image as the land of seduction and romance. ?Although the public mostly focuses on domestic violence, sexual violence committed on the street, on public transport or in other public places is just as serious, and merits more attention,? the report said. France?s National Observatory of Crime and Criminal Justice (ONDRP) found that 267,000 people ? 85 percent of whom were women ? were sexually harassed on public transport between 2014 and 2015, including kissing, groping, flashing, and rape. It is the first time the ONDRP ? which publishes an annual survey on insecurity ? has focused on sexual harassment on public transport. Paris was voted the third most woman-friendly city in a Thomson Reuters Foundation survey published in October and ranked fourth least risky for sexual violence. But harassment remains prevalent, many said on social media. ?I was spat at, called a whore... and one morning groped by two laughing men on a crowded metro,? Siobhán Dowling said on Twitter, describing her time in Paris as a student. ?The level of everyday harassment was shocking.? Sexual harassment on public transport was worst for women in the Paris region, with reports of incidents seven times higher than in the rest of the country, the study found. Most cases of sexual harassment occurred when a train or bus was moving so the victim could not flee, the study said. ?When you have closed spaces with hundreds of thousands of people and zero security agents or police, it?s no wonder that cowardly perpetrators act in total impunity,? Ikram Moustaoui said on Facebook. French women have taken to social media to share tales of sexual harassment, outstripping the #MeToo campaign with a name-and-shame hashtag #BalanceTonPorc ? or ?expose your pig?. French President Emmanuel Macron unveiled measures in November aimed at educating the public and schoolchildren about sexism and violence against women and improving police support for victims. Macron also proposed criminalizing street harassment. Nevertheless, France?s gender equality ministry declined to comment. ?via Thomson Reuters Foundation
