Only one person's been charged in the two years since Nottinghamshire Police started classifying misogyny as a hate crime.
A Lincs FM investigation shows they've had over 170 reports of men behaving inappropriately though.
They include from a girl as young as 12 to women in their 60s on issue from leering to groping or even threats of sexual violence.
In many cases officers found no crime had been committed.
The police say it can be difficult to get the evidence for a prosecution.
