The week's news at a glance.
Italys high court ruled this week that grabbing a womans behind was a form of sexual assault. The finding was a reversal of the courts ruling two years ago, when it said that an unwanted smack or pinch on the bottom was acceptable if it was an isolated or impulsive act. That ruling caused international outrage and galvanized Italian womens groups to lobby the government. Italian women welcomed the new no-touching rule, but they didnt think it would make notoriously grabby Italian males keep their hands to themselves. It wont change the way they behave because I dont think girls often go to the police over this kind of thing, Tara Londi told the BBC. A slap in the face is always better.
