Make Catcalling a CRIME

This petition had 132 supporters

Almost every woman in the world experiences Sexual Harassment such as Offensive Gestures ,Uninvited conduct or behavior and catcalling. Catcalling is a whistle or comment of a sexual nature to a woman passing by.

Catcalling happens everywhere and everyday even though there is a law created for catcalling, other people don’t take it seriously and is being implemented easily. Although Catcalling is considered a sexual harassment, women still is afraid to report “cat callers”.  Almost every girl gets scared whenever they go out and they feel uneasy every time they get to pass men. Even if they try to dress properly to avoid the guy’s attention, catcalling still happens. We are not just fighting this petition for us students but for everyone especially women, to be safer on streets.

The Commission of Human Rights should reinforce catcalling and introduce it as a crime already. Not many people know about catcalling being a crime so it should be announced so that offenders would know their consequences. Also so women wouldn’t be afraid to tell the authorities about what they’ve experienced and have the offenders punished.
