There has been so much violence and sexual assaults on trains and tube trains in London. This has proved that many males are unable to control themselves.
Males nowadays are brainwashed with hardcore porn and seem to be unable to control their urges. It is all very well saying men should control themselves, they should, but some are so opportunist that they can’t. They are risk takers, willing to risk their job and family over a sex assault and a fight.
So, there comes a point that we women need to make a stand against male violence and have our own women only carriages. Other countries do this already like Iran, Japan, Mexico and Brazil and these are just some of them.
My colleague was sexually assaulted on London’s tube network and I remember that she came to work in tears. I have been verbally abused on the train by a group of , and drunk males can be very intimidating and unpredictable. I had this middle aged male touching himself next to me on a crowded train. I was so shocked I couldn’t move, but I would now. He reminds me that we do need women only carriages.
Some women may not want to use the women only carriages but they will have the choice. I want the choice to use a women only carriage. I don’t want the fear of violence, abuse, theft and sexual assault when I am travelling. Nothing is every done, as people at the top are still men.
