Upskirting is the act of taking a photograph of underneath a person’s skirt without their consent.
It is often performed in a public place such as on public transport or on an escalator, with crowds of people making it harder to spot people taking these photos.
A large proportion of women are targeted in places such as nightclubs, restaurants and shops.
Being victim to such an incident can cause emotional distress for a long time after it has happened.
What is the law around upskirting?
Upskirting is to be become a specific criminal offence in England and Wales - it is already a criminal offence in Scotland.
If you catch somebody doing it, and inform the authorities, they can request that the image is deleted, but no further prosecution is possible.
In Scotland, upskirting is an illegal offence, and has been since 2010 when it was listed under the definition of voyeurism.
Victims and police are only able to pursue offences of voyeurism and indecency, with a Freedom of Information request made by the Press Association revealing that the police have pursued 78 offences related to upskirting since 2015 - but only 11 led to alleged offenders being charged.

What is upskirting?
Upskirting is a highly intrusive practice, which typically involves someone taking a picture under another person’s clothing without their knowledge, with the intention of viewing their genitals or buttocks (with or without underwear).
It can take place in a range of places, eg British Transport Police have seen a rise of reports on public transport.
The new law will capture instances where the purpose of the behaviour is to obtain sexual gratification, or to cause humiliation, distress or alarm.
Anyone, and any gender, can be a victim and this behaviour is completely unacceptable.

What effect can upskirting have on victims?
Upskirting is distressing and a humiliating violation of privacy for victims.
We want victims to know and be confident that reports to the police will be taken seriously.

What punishment can upskirting perpetrators face under the new law?
Perpetrators will face two years in prison. By criminalising this distressing practice, it is hoped that it deters people from committing the crime.
Upskirting, where committed to obtain sexual gratification, can result in the most serious offenders being placed on the sex offenders register.
The new law will send a clear message that such behaviour is criminal and will not be tolerated.

A law change that comes into force in the UK today makes the highly intrusive practice of ‘upskirting’ illegal.
The government said it wants the new law to send a clear message that such behaviour is criminal and will not be tolerated.
Perpetrators in England and Wales face up to two years in prison under the new law if they’re convicted of taking a photograph or video underneath a person’s clothes for the purpose of viewing their underwear or genitals/buttocks without their knowledge or consent for sexual gratification or to cause humiliation, distress or alarm. (Scotland, home of the traditional male clothing item known as the kilt, has had a law against upskirting since 2010.)
There have been prosecutions for upskirting in England and Wales under an existing common law offence of outraging public decency. But following a campaign started by an upskirting victim the government decided to legislate to plug gaps in the law to make it a sexual offence.
The Voyeurism (Offences) (No. 2) Bill was introduced on June 21 last year and gains royal assent today.
Where the offence of upskirting is committed in order to obtain sexual gratification it can result in the most serious offenders being placed on the sex offenders register.
Under the new law victims are also entitled to automatic protection, such as from being identified in the media.

They should make this illegal everywhere, the camera's now are so tiny, easy to conceal. I think people need protection from this. I have heard of this happening in major restaurants where they place a camera facing the toilet.
"When you search on Google for Toronto hidden camera porn, you will find millions of videos. When you click on the results for Google, it will take you to porn sites and you will see places you recognize in Toronto," said Trus. "We thought, oh my gosh, these people have no clue that they are basically being assaulted by someone and these repeat offenders are getting away with it."
"It's upsetting that a lot of these people can't go to public washrooms or unisex washrooms and feel safe and have to check for cameras all the time," said Eatz.
Hans School, president of SpyTech, told Global News that part of the problem is that cameras are getting smaller and record in better quality. It's easy enough to even purchase cameras that look like wall outlets online, he said, or you can make your own at home, sticking a small camera behind fake wall socket.


That's exactly what happened at a Starbucks at the intersection of Yonge and King streets in downtown Toronto. When the coffee company got into hot water after it failed to notify the public right away that a wall-socket camera had been discovered under their bathroom sink, facing the toilet.

Takes one to know one!! Lmao
As our population has grown that means the sicko's percentage has also grown, but I believe the percent is above average for the pop, I think we have way to many criminals and sicko's for this pop. and like so many other things we need to remove these parasites and then start to get the pop. back on a healthy track, but i don't realyl think this is possible anymore. at the current rate of growth versus what the rates of reversal would be. NOPE not gonna happen, SOOOOOO back to the train of thought where "the massive negative world changing event" be has to occur to stop this madness from totally taking over at some point down the road. WOW what a nice thought for this time of the morning! (sarc) gonna ruin my brkfst. LOL Chuckle

In High School, a cute girl sat behind me in Social Studies. I dropped my pencil on the floor numerous times to get a "gapper look" up her skirt. Yeah3

Part of the problem has also been society's unrealistic need to coddle, protect, and shelter the perpetrators while beginning a slow decent into villainizing the victims. Yes, they're perverts, but no reason to think because "maybe" they'll learn and change to keep giving them a free pass over and over.

People won't change if their bad behavior keeps getting excused...

YOU know what i am talking about!
There is a difference between "boys" hormones of curiosity and fine looking girls during adolescence and what these people are doing.

I was walking the sales floor looking for an arrest one day at Target and I saw a creep do this to a lady in greeting cards right next to her little daughter. It's safe to say I had a moment of insanity. I walked right up behind the dude and when he turned around I was literally 2 inches from his face. I asked him "What the fuck is going on here?" The man never spoke to me. I told him he was leaving my store right away and that I had his activities on camera (total bluff). I told him if I ever saw him in there again he was leaving in handcuffs. The dude was lucky I was working or I would have just destroyed his perverted ass. He was definitely fearful that I caught him as I imagine most of these degenerates are.
