Street harassment – it’s not ok

Featured on TED.com

Street harassment of women and girls is endemic. In the UK, two in three girls have been sexually harassed in public. In this passionate talk, Jess Leigh argues it’s time to stop blaming girls and take a stand against unacceptable behaviour.

Since joining Plan International UK’s youth advisory panel at the age of 15, Jess Leigh has worked on a number of campaigns to give girls an equal chance in life and spoken in a number of venues including the House of Lords about issues facing girls in the 21st century.
