Our thanks to M for alerting us to this piece about a Czech organisation, ‘Union of Fathers’, objecting to a pilot scheme in the Czech Republic which is copying the women-only railway compartment initiatives of Austria and Switzerland:
Will we ever see women-only compartments on trains in the UK? Of course we will. And you can be very sure women will get proportionately more carriages, and more comfortable carriages. Before long most or all of the female passengers will be sitting down throughout their journeys, while most or all of the male passengers will be standing. Why?
Because when it come to privilege the female train only ever goes forward, and the male train only ever goes backwards.
