    I wonder what the motivation is behind this?

    Safety I'd suggest. It is for unaccompanied women and children under 12.

    Exactly. Quite similar to the women only train carriages in India.

    It's just a shame that in this day and age there's still a need for these things

    It's always been needed. We just hear about it more. Just like the awful child abuse stuff being revealed about the '60's and sadly, to this day.

    You would just think that we might have evolved past it with a little education, but obviously not.

    Quite often it is the educated that we need to be protected from

    In many cases, yes. But for different reasons.

    The Ancient Greeks and Romans were highly educated and look what they got up to.

    I guess it's what society accepts at the time.

    Excellent point. I think what I meant to convey was educating people to what is no longer accepted in our society.

    LOL.

    And who is going to protect the men?

    JohnK, I'd dare suggest the vast majority of men are pretty safe from violence from random women. The statistics seem to suggest that. ;)

    I am not too sure the statistics are that accurate. There are some men who are very hesitant to report suffering violence from women.

    As are women especially if there is a religious or cultural element that is used to justify the violence.
