Women-Only Subway Cars

As a recent New Yorker, I'm interested in the history of the city, which is why I loved this mini-history of women-only subway cars, which were tested briefly for about six months. The subway never struck me as a dangerous place, but I am saddened to see women report that men are the best protection. (Gender roles being reinforced all over again.)
The mini-history also discusses other women-only transportation systems in other parts of the world.
