Protesters' are set to take to the streets of Sutton this weekend, to campaign against sexual harassment experienced by women within the borough.

Reclaim Sutton’s Streets will march through the high street on Saturday, June 26.

It comes after the "shocking" results the group received from a recent survey answered by 170 women within a two week period.

The group, which formed in the wake of Sarah Everard's death, launched an anonymous survey to help females share their experiences of sexual harassment.

The survey asked women and girls about their experiences within the last three years - it closed at the end of April.

Reclaim Sutton's Streets found that out of the 170 women surveyed only 18% of them felt safe in the borough.

91% of the respondents said they were under the age of 18 when they experienced sexual harassment.

Other results reported to us by the group, include:

- 82% of women did not report the harassment / abuse

- 26% of women were harassed / abused on public transport

- 34% of women were harassed / abused out in the open

- 50% of women were harassed / abused by a stranger

- 25% of women were harassed / abused by a teacher, boss, or colleague

The group is co-founded by Anna Cummins and Rhiannon Spry-Shute.

Speaking about their recent findings Anna Cummins said: "The results of the survey were shocking but not surprising, the results are very similar to larger national surveys.

"The huge number of women who first experienced harassment under the age of 18 demonstrates why street harassment is not a compliment.

"Older men making lewd comments to teenage girls is inappropriate and intolerable."

She added: "We are holding the protest to not only raise awareness but to encourage local women and girls to report harassment to the police.

"In the 21st century, it is just not acceptable for women and girls to be expected to tolerate abuse as they go about their daily lives."

The march will start outside Asda on Sutton High Street at noon and will continue on Town Square next to Waterstones with guest speakers.
