In order to spotlight sexual harassment on the street, a young French woman posted a video of herself being hit in the face by a man in the streets of Paris. The video has gone viral in France, and Paris prosecutors have launched an investigation.
Last Wednesday, Marie Laguerre, 22, posted on her Facebook page a video showing her being hit in the face by a man on a Paris street. Laguerre shared her experience in a Facebook post.
“Last night, as I was coming back home in Paris, I walked past a man who sexually/verbally harassed me,” she wrote in the post.
“He wasn’t the first one and I can’t accept being humiliated like that, so I replied ‘shut up,'” she continued. “He then threw an ashtray at me, before rushing back to punch me, in the middle of the street, in front of dozens of people.”
