Asking A Woman For Her Phone Number May Soon Become A Criminal Offence

It may soon become a criminal offence to stop a woman on the street and ask for her phone number in a particular country of the world.

According to a report by The Sun UK, wolf-whistling is set to be banned in France as the government declares war on men hassling women in public.

Under new plans bugging women for their telephone numbers and following them could also be prohibited.

The crackdown comes after surveys show virtually all French women have been harassed on public transport, in the street or elsewhere at some time.

France's new leader, President Emmanuel Macron, has pledged to end this during his election campaign this year.

Only a few countries, including Belgium and Portugal, have banned such behaviour.

The UK and others have broader laws against harassment in general but none so specific.
