The CCJHR, in partnership with UCC FemSoc, is delighted to host a Skype discussion with Gina Martin, the campaigner who recently made upskirting illegal in England & Wales. This event will be chaired by Dr Catherine O'Sullivan, and will include a discussion on the criminal law relating to upskirting. About Gina Martin: After two men took upskirt photos of Gina Martin while she was at a music festival, she began a campaign to make it a sexual offence in the summer of 2017. She set up a petition asking people to support her in getting the law changed. Gina and her lawyer, Ryan Whelan, worked with the Ministry of Justice on a Private Members Bill to make upskirting a sexual offence. The Voyeurism (Offences) (No.2) Bill, known colloquially as the Upskirting Bill, received Royal Assent on 12 February 2019. It becomes the Voyeurism (Offences) Act 2019 and will come into force in England and Wales on 12 April 2019
