German Railway Launches Gender Segregated Carriages In Wake Of Sex Attacks
by Oliver Lane
A central German regional railway is launching a special women and children only area for their trains, a move which has triggered controversy.
The announcement from the central German Regiobahn line came earlier this week, with the network stating the new compartment on their Leipzig and Chemnitz would admit women and young children only.
To ensure maximum peace for those choosing to travel in that compartment not only would it be sandwiched between the service's two quiet coaches, but it would also be next to the on-board office of the "customer service representative". Traditionally known as a train guard or ticket inspector, the company said "the local proximity to the customer service representative is chosen deliberately".
