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 â€” from the relatively minor to the really lewd â€” 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.”
