Coming soon to a station near you – trains with women-only compartments

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.

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.
