Her Street View
Touche pas à ma Pote
Issue 45 | December 2017
In 2012, Sofie Peeters made a film called "Women of the Street", which showed the degree of abuse to which women in Belgium were subjected, when out and about.
It inspired Bea Ercolini to create the non-profit organisation Touche pas à ma Pote.
Despite legislation passed in 2014 outlawing "any gesture or behaviour intended to express contempt for a person because of his or her sex", research showed that 98% of women in Belgium had been harassed and insulted while walking on the streets.
