London Mayor Matt Brown said street preachers who harangue women for what they're wearing have no place on city streets and said he's spoken to police about keeping an eye on their behaviour.  

"This is the exact kind of environment that we're working on eliminating in our community," Brown said. "It's gender discrimination. It has no place in our community.

"When I see derogatory language like that, when I see offensive comments like that, I think about my sister my mother my grandmother. No one should be subjected to that kind of language for walking down the street."
