Groping of teens slammed by union


THE REPORTED harassment and groping of two teenagers at the Noord Street taxi rank in central Joburg is a setback in the struggle for women’s rights, a trade union said yesterday. “The backward, chauvinist­ic and ugly scene where two teens were harassed by taxi rank lumpens (sic), or the dangerous class, should be condemned by all,” National Union of Metalworke­rs of SA spokesman Castro Ngobese said. The two teenagers were harassed and groped in public on Friday because one of them was wearing a miniskirt. Joburg metro police intervened and accompanie­d the girl in the miniskirt home. – Sapa
