In reading a Salon.com story about “The creepiest man in New York: A gross portrait of a subway molester,” I learned that New York City’s Metropolitan Transit Authority has a page on its website for victims of improper sexual conduct to anonymously report such incidents.
In light of the recent stories and arrest of a Chicago man charged with groping women on the L, I thought that would be a great idea for the CTA to create such a page.
The CTA has run a campaign against harassment, which is good. And there now are cameras on just about every rail car and bus.
It might help to allow women to make anonymous reports of harassment as they can on New York’s MTA.
