Goons call woman ‘whore’ for wearing a skirt

France Bleu Alsace radio held an interview with her after the incident. She said that she was going home when one of the goons said, “Look at that whore in a skirt.” While two of them held her, one began hitting her face. This resulting in leaving one of her eyes severely injured. Over a dozen people watched the incident unravel, but not a single person helped her.

The junior interior minister, Marlena Schiappa, also in charge of equality issues, visited Strasbourg on Wednesday. She discussed the safety of women in public.

A woman is hit because there are people who are misogynistic, sexist, violent, and who free themselves from any law and any rule of civility by striking them.

Moreover, if a student keeps thinking about what they have to wear, then it becomes a mental pressure.

She furthermore requested people to help if they see people harassing women again.
