Street harassment isn’t just a problem in the UK. It’s one of the most pervasive forms of violence against women, a global epidemic that violates women’s rights and holds them back from socialising, working, learning – from living their lives to the full. None of this is acceptable.
The first step to tackling violence is to understand just how widespread it is.

Do you know just how widespread violence against women is? Take the quiz to find out, and share to spread the word.
