Costumed Female Comic-Con Attendees Ask For Sexual Harassment Protection



Quote
Female’s Comic-Con attendees dress the part of sci-fi and fantasy characters, but they say widespread sexual harassment is becoming a serious threat at the annual event.

Three women from Philadelphia founded Geeks for CONsent after being groped, followed and unwillingly photographed during the four-day event in San Diego.

Geeks for CONsent collected nearly 2,600 signatures online in support of a new anti-harassment policy for Comic-Con to stop blatant objectification of cosplay attendees.
