Quick Hit: Boston targets harassers on subway

Big ups to MBTA!
Boston transit officials have launched a campaign against sexual harassment on the subway. While the “grope patrol” (as they like to call themselves) makes me giggle a little, the campaign has already begun to make a difference in encouraging women to come forward when they’re harassed on the train:

“The number of reported groping incidents — from the relatively minor to the really lewd — has doubled. Some women have even preserved clothing, which police officers need for evidence, while others are sending in pictures of guys they snap on their cell phones.”

They must have gotten that idea from the Hollaback ladies of Boston!
