“A taxi firm in Lebanon has unveiled a new concept geared toward women, complete with a fleet of pink cars and pink-attired female drivers ready to keep the sexes apart,” reports Jester at Lebanese Inner Circle.
It’s really hard to tell if it is sex determination, a good business deal, or even a new trend that will keep some Lebanese women busy for the coming period. I doubt if it’s a sex discrimination issue because some women here don’t need to get in a pink Taxis to show their point of view. They can simply voice their opinion out if they need to. On the other hand it might be a good business, keeping in mind that some of the Lebanese women are fascinated with the new fashion regardless if it proves a point or not. Pink has never been my favorite color, I’ve always thought of myself as a green person.
If my daughter rides back from school from a friend’s house or from school, i feel better using a woman specialized taxi, it is safer.
