Thousands of people in France have taken the "Me Too" online campaign to the streets.

The hashtag has been used by millions of women worldwide to highlight and protest against endemic sexual harassment.

It was triggered by the Harvey Weinstein scandal, the Hollywood producer accused of sexually assaulting and raping many actresses and subordinates over a number of years.

The French government has recently acknowledged the scale of the issue and proposed new legislation to combat sexual harassment and assault in France.
