People who don’t know ‘upskirting’, It’s practice of making unauthorized photographs or videos under a woman’s skirt. It happens when you are sitting on a bus or walking up the stairs. It is a form of sexual harassment which is on a rise, all thanks to smartphones. It is still not a criminal offense in many countries and still, there are women who are completely unaware of this.
Recently a young Russian woman was seen protesting ‘upskirting’ and calling to criminalize this act.
Check out what happened at St. Petersburg subway and why this woman pulled up her skirt in front of people.
Anna Dovgalyuk, a Russian public activist conducted a social experiment at St. Petersburg subway.
In this experiment a woman was seen standing in the middle of subway stations and lifting up her skirt in front of the camera.
She goes stands at various places at the subway station to do this experiment.
A lot of people didn’t understand what she was trying to tell and why this experiment was needed.
The whole idea behind pulling up the skirt in public place to educate people about ‘upskirting’ and make it a criminal offense.
She dedicated the video to people who peek under skirts of women and take photos.
The video has been watched by a lot of people where people supported this act while others didn’t like the idea of lifting skirt to stop ‘upskirting’.
Upskirting is already illegal in Scotland, Australia, New Zealand and some US states, but there are still some countries when it is not yet considered as a criminal offense.
In Japan, all camera phones make a noise when a picture is taken that cannot be turned off, in the hope of discouraging these kinds of acts or also known as creepshots.
Some people think it’s not a big deal but it is a big deal and a form of sexual harassment which should not be encouraged.
This young woman in red dress has done a courageous and controversial thing which is surely gonna open debates for people.
