PARIS - A young woman who posted a shocking video of a man punching her outside a Paris cafe launched a website on Wednesday (Aug 1) which allows victims of harassment to tell their stories.
The site "Nous Toutes Harcelement" (We are all harassed) aims to collect accounts of incidents "in the street, at work, in the private sphere" Marie Laguerre, 22, told AFP.
"It's anonymous, and that will allow these women to talk freely," she added.
Laguerre, a student, wrote on Facebook last week that she was returning home when a man started making lewd comments. She told him to "shut up" and kept walking away, while the man went in the opposite direction.
In surveillance video provided by the cafe, the man is then seen grabbing an ashtray from a table on the cafe's patio and throwing it at her.
He then returns and strikes Laguerre across the face.
She filed a complaint with police and later posted the video, writing that "we must no longer keep quiet".
