Dear ladies, Join us on Monday, 22nd November, 2021 at 5.30 PM to take part in our first open discussion meet-up on harassment of women in Prague’s public transport.
Unfortunately, there have been too many stories from women around Prague telling of their experiences of unwanted touching, grabbing or even of attempted rape.
Other examples of sexual misconduct mentioned are staring, standing too close on purpose, inappropriate comments and suggestions, sexual gestures and movements, blocking of movement, forced personal contact and indecent exposure.
According to an article published in expats.cz, a third of women (and 10% of men) experience sexual harassment in Czech public transport. Basically, 35 percent of women have recently experienced sexual misconduct. The statistics gathered from a poll by the Focus agency for the Czech government, state that nearly three out of five women mentioned instances of people staring or standing too close, while a quarter of the respondents had experienced someone masturbating in front of them and 7 percent had faced attempted rape.
In light of all this, we would love to have you join us and hear about your thoughts and/or experiences on this issue.
