The theocratic group Sharia4Belgium responded to Sophie Peeters’s documentary about street harassment by remarking that she dresses like a whore.
In Thursday’s video message Sharia4Belgium said of Ms Peeters that “She walks the streets half-naked and dresses like a cheap prostitute. She has painted her face like a clown. She has done all this to attract the attention of men.”
The fundamentalist group believes that Ms Peeters provoked the men in the film.
“Why do you think that women go about scantily-clad and with painted faces? It’s to get reactions from men.”
And men “react” by calling her “salope” – and that’s her fault. Charming.
