Harassment: Girls ‘wear shorts under school skirts’

Give me strength. An extract from the BBC piece:

The Women and Equalities Committee is conducting an investigation into the extent of sexual harassment and violence in England’s schools.

Sophie Bennett, co-director of UK Feminista, told the committee: “We’ve heard from girls who tell us you don’t leave school as a girl without being called a slut, that to wear shorts under your skirt to prevent boys revealing your underwear in the playground is just normal behaviour.

“So there is that sense of a normalised culture of sexual harassment in schools where girls don’t feel able to report it and instead change their own behaviour such as wearing shorts under their skirts.”

UK Feminista is an odious organization led by Kat Banyard, a hatchet-faced young radical feminist. She won the inaugural Lying Feminist of the Month award for wildly exaggerating the prevalence of sexual harassment of schoolgirls in an interview with Jon Snow for Channel 4 News in March 2013. Her award certificate is here, the video of that interview here.

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.

    I said it before. Let’s separate schools and workplaces by gender,and undoubtedly girls will not have harassment problems. Why don’t feminists support segregation then? Men will not go to jails, women will not be harassed. Problem solved. Why not then ?

    And this is news? It’s always happened, and never used to be called harassment, just stupid.
