Professor Clare McGlynn of Durham University, says that we have only seen the tip of the iceberg.

According to the professor makes the increased technology it is easier for men to harass women. Also drop many women to report abuse.

- It's about power, and we need to address the inequality in gender and the sinister view of women. First, that we will see a reduction in cyperflashing, says Clare McGlynn to The Independent.

In 2019 was only arrested one in connection with the cyberflashing. The problem with the cyberflashing is that billeddelingen is anonymous, which makes the work of the police.

the Number of reviews increased significantly in 2019, but several women do not consider the offence as serious enough to report it. We therefore believe the police, that there are far more cases of cyberflashing, than the real numbers shows.

The british police received 66 reviews in 2019, where the 2018 received 34 reviews.

It is mainly women who are victims of the cyberflashing, and the figures also show that women in 57 percent of the cases are under 30 years old.

There has not yet been registered any cases in Denmark, informs the national Police.
