Abstract:

Traditionally, the issue of street harassment has often been deemed as something trivial and unworthy of legal consideration. That tide has been turning with a steady increase in attention for the phenomenon from scholars, activists and legislators. As much of the discourse has been America-centric, there is much room for exploring it in the European context, especially in light of the handful of European countries which adopted legislation to combat some form street harassment in the past few years.
