The majority of women and girls in the UK have experienced sexual harassment in public places, according to new data from U.N. Women.
The study found that 97 percent of women aged 18 to 24 have experienced sexual harassment in public spaces, and more than 70 percent of women of all ages have endured such behaviour.
The data, which forms part of U.N. Women UK's Safe Spaces Now campaign, will be referred to the government and other public bodies in a bid to effect changes.
