London schoolgirls should be taught self-defence in PE lessons to help them fend off attacks on the tube and buses, a campaigner said.

Zan Moon, who last week gave a 19-page dossier detailing women’s experiences of harassment on public transport to Mayor Sadiq Khan, said the government should fund the self-defence lessons.

Ms Moon, who described public transport in London as a “hotbed of harassment”, said: “We don’t have the luxury of time to simply wait around for a generation of boys to unlearn misogynistic beliefs, we must do something to help our sisters and ourselves in the meantime.”
