Women across France protest against sexual abuse under MeToo banner
Women have been protesting in 11 cities across France against sexual abuse and harassment under the #MeToo banner in the wake of mounting allegations against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.
Hundreds of people protested on the Republic Plaza in Paris on Sunday.
Women's group Les Effronte-e-s urged women to "go on the street to show ... we are thousands and thousands who have to live, cushion the blow, digest it and handle often-traumatizing experiences."
More than 80,000 adult women in France face rape or attempted rape every year but only 10% file a complaint, according to French statistics.
The French government last week proposed a bill aiming to eventually make harassment against women in French streets an offence that will be punished with fines.
