Women Only Public Transportation

Here's a really interesting article about public transportation segregated by sex.  This concept had never crossed my mind before I read this piece, but in many cases around the world women-only transport is saving women from sexual assault and helping them maintain gainful employment and educational access.  As the article points out, the bigger issue is keeping women safe in the entire public realm.  Still, it's an innovative idea that works in our still imperfect world.
