If you thought this is uncomfortable, think about women everywhere, everyday.

Sexual assault, molestation, groping, catcalling is a daily reality for women around the world. Public transport, especially, is a hotbed for sexual predators, where the crowd and chaos provide them with cover to carry out their despicable acts.

Recently, Mexico City recognised this issue, and came up with a novel way to create awareness about molestation of women in public transport.

Some seats in the Mexico City Metro were designated as reserved for 'Men Only'. What was special about these seats though, was that they were designed in the shape of a seated male torso, complete with a penis.

Needless to say, it made commuters very, very uncomfortable.

The idea behind this installation is to acquaint commuters with the agony women are put through when strange men in buses and trains feel them up and rub their junk against them, stating the jostling crowd as a valid excuse.

A tiny plaque accompanies the seat, which says,

It’s uncomfortable to sit here but it doesn’t compare with the sexual violence that women suffer in their everyday lives.

A video capturing the reactions of unsuspecting passengers has been released, and it appears that this initiative by the Mexico City Metro will yield results, eventually at least.

It seems like a long shot that Indian authorities will get over our typical prudery and do something of the sort, but this is definitely worth a thought!
