It was stated that discriminatory practices such as 'pink wagon' and 'pink bus' did not solve the problem.
Public transport is almost a harassment and disturbance environment for many women in all countries of the world. The situation for women in the capital of Kenya is the same. Women's Empowerment Link, Nairobi-based support group called the Women's Empowerment Link 381 Kenyan women, most of them were exposed to sexual violence in public vehicles, he said. The studies compiled by Stop Street Harrasment have similar findings. The research shows that all women in Paris are harassed at least once in public transport.
SHOPS WHICH SHOULD ONLY TAKE WOMEN DOES SOLVE THE PROBLEM?
In Japan, there are only metro cars carrying women, but has this made the trip more secure? Some politicians, including the leader of the main opposition Labor Party in Britain, Jeremy Corbyn, said separate wagons could be the solution for women. In many countries, from Mexico to Japan and from Turkey to India; Trying on different vehicles such as buses, trains and taxis. But is there any evidence that women are making their lives safer? This is hard to measure for many reasons. The attacks on public vehicles are not reported most of the time, and many countries do not publish this data.
EXPANSION OF 'PINK'
Even though the distinction is for cultural reasons, many countries have implemented women-specific vehicles primarily due to sexual harassment problems. But is this practice reduced the harassment of women? The way to know this is to compare the conditions before and after these vehicles. However, there is very little data on this subject. One of the places where data is Japan, the capital of Japan.
In 2004, women-specific vehicles were introduced on a number of train lines. A year later, there was a decrease of 3 in non-intentioned behaviors towards women in the city, but in two of the lines where women's wagons were put into use, harassment increased by a percentage of 15-20. However, this may be due to the increase in the number of mixed wagons or the number of complainants.
BUSINESS REVOLUTIONS AT THE TIME
If separate wagons will give women peace of mind, doesn't it make sense to put them into practice? Despite his experience, Lynn doesn't think so. Instead, he thinks that the whole community in Kenya is the key to change, not to tolerate harassment and harassment. Women are safer traveling, but draw attention to the fact that they can still face harassment as soon as they get off the bus. It's not just Lynn who thinks this policy is wrong. Many academics and experts believe that sex-based vehicles are only a temporary solution and normalize attacks on women.
Rather than expecting harassers to change their behavior or to introduce more effective laws, they say women expect to avoid harassment.
'APPLICATION WOMEN GIVE A MESSAGE NEEDED TO CLICK HERE'
Laura Bates, Founder of the Everyday Sexism Project, agrees that this practice means accepting the attacks on women. “The right thing is to take a criminal-focused approach… The vehicles carrying women alone send the message that such attacks are inevitable and that only women should be locked away and avoided,” Laura Bates told BBC 4. The data reveal that women feel safer in separate vehicles, and this could mean they are safer during their journey.
However, gender-based carriage does not point to the problems of harassment and harassment. These problems include the adoption of the behavior pattern in society, unbalanced power dynamics and the lack of sanctions for the perpetrators.
'WOMEN SHOULD NOT TRAVEL' APPROVES THINK
A report by the FIA association on the safety of women in public vehicles writes that gender-based discrimination ”does not underline the issue of this being unacceptable behavior ın and el women are not allowed to travel freely and women acknowledge the need for special attention F.
