Morning Commutes Around The World

Special Offer

NAME: Mika Kondo Kunieda
AGE: 34
PROFESSION: Consultant at The World Bank
LOCATION: Tokyo, Japan

"I ride in a special women-only metro car that runs between 7:20 and 9:20 a.m. The cars were created in 2005 due to frequent complaints that women were being groped and sexually harassed. I was a victim a few times when I was younger, and it was-and still is-a humiliating experience. I had to learn how to position myself against unwanted moves in even the most overcrowded train. Now, I've seen a few men get visibly anxious when they realize they've accidentally boarded a car during women-only time!"
