Jeremy Corbyn has suggested we consider women only train carriages solutions to stem the rise in sexual assaults on public transport.
Labour leadership contender Jeremy Corbyn has said he would consider women-only rail carriages to help stem a rise in assaults on public transport- www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-34059249
Mr Corbyn told the Independent he would consult women on the suggestion.
But the idea was attacked as outdated and unhelpful by his Labour leadership rivals Yvette Cooper and Andy Burnham.
And other critics, including Conservative women’s minister Nicky Morgan, said it smacked of “segregation”.
It comes after British Transport Police (BTP) figures suggested sex offences on trains and at stations had risen by 25% to record levels.
‘Turning back clock’
Mr Corbyn said: “My intention would be to make public transport safer for everyone from the train platform to the bus stop to the mode of transport itself.
“However, I would consult with women and open it up to hear their views on whether women-only carriages would be welcome – and also if piloting this at times and [on] modes of transport where harassment is reported most frequently would be of interest.”
