Asking a lady for her phone number is one of the most guaranteed means of following up on a date.

The excitement that erupts inside a guy as soon as a lady obliges him is indescribable. 

But a country is about to announce a ban on bugging women for their phone numbers and following them.

The crackdown comes after a survey revealed that virtually all women in France have been harassed on public transportation.

During his election campaign, France’s new leader, Emmanuel Macron, had pledged to end harassment.

Gender equality minister, Marlene Schiappa, is attempting to define the punishment for street harassment.

Some lawyers say such instances would be difficult to prove and that men should only be prosecuted if a police officer witnesses an offense.

Of course, street harassment is nothing new. In New York, offenders can be slapped with a $250 fine.
