eve-teasing

eve-teasing
 n.— «One aspect of the problem of student indiscipline which is plaguing university authorities in India has been the bullying and harassment of girl students in the few coeducational institutions—a pastime so common that it has been given the name of “Eve-teasing.”…”Eve-teasing” is not, apparently, just the oafish high spirtis or illwill of a handful of male students but is rather a symptom of the strong resentment which many students feel against women in the universities.» —“Protection For Indian Girl Students” in Delhi, India Times (London, England) Apr. 22, 1960.
