FoxNews.com: Massachusetts lawmakers approved a bill Thursday to ban those who secretly take ‘upskirt’ photographs of women or children in public.

The bill comes one day after the state Supreme Court ruled that a man who took cellphone photos up the skirts of female passengers riding the Boston subway didn’t violate state law, because the women were clothed.

“It is sexual harassment. It’s an assault on another person whether it’s a child or an adult,” Senate President Therese Murray said moments after the Senate unanimously approved the bill. “Woman and children should be able to go to public places without feeling that they are not protected by the law.” Read more at:  foxnews.com.
