97% of young women have been sexually harassed, study finds

The majority of women and girls in the UK have experienced sexual harassment in public places, according to new data from U.N. Women. 
The study found that 97 percent of women aged 18 to 24 have experienced sexual harassment in public spaces, and more than 70 percent of women of all ages have endured such behaviour.
The data was collected from a YouGov survey of over 1,000 women commissioned in January 2021 by U.N. Women UK, the United Nations entity dedicated to gender equality in the country. The research also showed a lack of faith in authorities, with just four percent of women telling YouGov they'd reported incidents of harassment to an official organisation, and 45 percent of women stating they didn't believe reporting it would change anything.
