The year of women. What we can do.

Again, the blog is taking a political theme.  Both parties are courting the “women vote” by taking (somewhat) stances on birth control and abortion.  I feel like these issues will never be resolved satisfactorily by the government.  But the government can take action on areas where there are responsible: transit.

Making public transit safer for women.  This is something government can and should be doing.

Here is a great article about the issue, with real testimonials, and some real solutions. Take a read!
