French lawmakers passed legislation making catcalling and street harassment illegal, punishable by fines up to 750 euros—an estimated $870. The new law includes provisions that increase the age of consent to 15, extends the amount of time victims have to report sexual assault, and increases the penalty for "upskirt" photographs. French lawmakers hope the new law will help protect citizens from harassment. Opponents worry they could be confusing or contribute to over-policing. Should the U.S. create similar laws?
