 New Sexual Harassment Law Approved By France

A legislation that makes sexual harassment a crime was approved by French lawmakers.

The new law was approved on Thursday by the National Assembly and sets three levels of harassment.


The most serious, in which the harasser has authority over the victim and the victim is younger than 15 years old, or multiple people carry out the harassment, is punishable by up to three years in prison, Fox News reports.

The legislation covers offenses in universities, the housing market and job interviews.

According to the report, the law states that single acts of sexual blackmail will be considered sexual harassment, whereas previously only repeated acts were.
