Mexico City: Mexico has introduced an innovative kind of seating for the male commuters of the country. The penis seats in the Mexican metro is nothing but an innovative way to catch people’s attention towards the issue like sexual harassment.
This bold new initiative has been taken up the by the Mexican Government to raise awareness about increasing sexual harassment incidents. The numbers are surprising. 65% of the women in the country face sexual harassment while travelling by a public transport.
The authorities have now set up seat exclusively reserved for men, to make them as uncomfortable as women do on public transport. They will now feel what a woman goes through when a man standing behind her keeps poking her with his crotch.
Let us tell you, these seats are designed resembling the shape of a man’s torso with a chest and a ‘penis’! Men get disgusted looking at it and no one wants to sit on the chair.
This campaign aims to bring the fact to light that 9 out 10 women in Mexico City face sexual violence while commuting by a public transport.
