The government has denied reports that the new European legislation to outlaw violence against women would mean a ban on wolf-whistling. A spokesman said:
"We are talking about a serious issue of harassment and stalking and domestic violence and abuse. Millions of women across Europe suffer from violence and abuse. By signing this convention, we are ensuring that British offenders who commit offences abroad will face justice in our courts."
Today on International Women's Day, the Government announced plans to make stalking a specific criminal offence.
International Women's Day is an important day to mark the injustices women suffer, both minor and major, at home and abroad.
