CALL TO ACTION: London Voyeurism Case

London call to action

For more information, you can read this article. Judge Goodman stated “[he was] not satisfied beyond a reasonable doubt that the only rational conclusion is that the limited pen camera images of the female students’ cleavage or breasts were made for a sexual purpose” demonstrating that he has failed to get the memo that breasts are often considered a sexual organ.

I share the disappointment and outrage expressed by the local community and the Sexual Assault Centre London. This represents a lost opportunity to interpret the voyeurism law in a broader way to recognize the ways that technology can be used to facilitate and perpetrate sexual violence.
