‘Having women’s only train carriages is like telling women to cover up to avoid being raped’
Hmm, wouldn't it be a better idea to segregate the assaulters from society instead?
Hands up who’s had their arse grabbed on a tube by a stranger. You have? Yeah. Me too.
Is it a common occurrence for women in the UK? Thankfully not as much as in areas including India, Japan, Mexico or Brazil (who have all already got women’s only train carriages) but it does happen.
Does that make it a normal thing? Hell no.
Touching anyone when they don’t want to be is a crime. And it happening even once is one time too many.
With Labour consulting about women-only train carriages to ‘combat the rise in sexual offences on public transport’ (which FYI, have doubled in the past five years), the question should actually be ‘ do women need a safe space?’ We can’t normalise this behaviour.
Personally, I think having women’s only train carriages is like telling women to cover up to avoid being raped. You can’t simply cover up the issue, you need to actually change behaviour and segregate those who do the assaulting – rather than the victims.
We haven’t had women’s only train carriages in the UK since the 1840s (albeit, there was still the rare train with them in 1977) so it’s great to see how progressive we’re being as a nation.
