Governor Deval Patrick signed the proposed bill[3] on Friday morning that bans taking upskirt photos, also known as “upskirting.” State lawmakers passed the bill unanimously which outlaws photographs of “sexual or other intimate parts” of women or children in public on Thursday.

The original Massachusetts law only banned taking “nude or partial nude” photos of people in dressing rooms and bathrooms.
