The scandal around Hollywood movie mogul Harvey Weinstein’s alleged treatment of a number of actresses, including four from France, has reignited the debate in France about how to end sexualised violence against women.

The French Defender of Rights found that one in five women suffer harassment in the workplace, but very few file complaints.

And 95 per cent of those that do end up losing their jobs.

As the government works on new legislation which would criminalise sexual violence in public places, RFI looks at how useful it would be, and what more should be done.
