Report suggests a third of girls sexually harassed at school


The End Violence Against Women Coalition has found that a third of girls have suffered some form of sexual harassment by peers whilst at school.

Sarah Green is a spokesperson for the campaign, and told BBC Radio 5 live that the harassment can include "groping... and then also violence that girls are already experiencing in romantic relationships when they are quite young."

"In schools we need to have an absolute line that boys know they don't cross with girls."
