Germany criminalizes upskirting

STUTTGART: Germany’s government has passed a bill that would criminalize upskirting, the abusive practice where someone takes unsolicited pictures or video under another person’s clothing. Global outrage has mounted against the act and campaigners have been instrumental in passing legislation against upskirting in multiple countries. “Taking photographs of a woman under her skirt or neckline is degrading and unjustifiable abuse of her personal space,” German Justice Minister Christine Lambrecht said in a statement.
