A third of girls harassed in school uniform

Research conducted by Opinium on behalf of Plan International UK has found that one in three girls in the UK have been sexually harassed in public while wearing school uniform.

Of the 1,004 girls surveyed aged 14 to 21, two thirds (66%) have experienced unwanted sexual attention or sexual/physical contact in public, while a quarter said they had been filmed or photographed by a stranger without permission.

Further to this, one in eight girls said their first experience of unwanted sexual attention or contact in a public place was when they were 12 years old or younger.
