South Korea : Seoul Launching Longer, Wider, Women-Only Parking

Extra wide and long women’s parking spaces that are helpfully drawn in pink lines with a female symbol to guide you are the latest thing in South Korea.

Thousands of the spaces, which are better-lit and closer to lifts and escalators, are being put in in Seoul.

According to website motoring.com.au, the city’s Assistant Mayor for Women and Family Affairs, Cho Eun-hee said: “It is like adding a female touch to a universal design and make things more comfortable for women.”

This is not the first time gender segregated parking spaces have been implemented.

In 2012, the German town of Triberg triggered a sexism row when it put in 12 parking spaces reserved for women in a 220-space car park, where the rest were “men only”.

Mayor Gallus Strobel said “humourless people” had criticised the move but the response was “overwhelmingly positive,” The Guardian reported.
