It’s hard to imagine a world without a taxi, and more recently without such services like Uber and Lyft. But just as most convenient things, ridesharing has its own downfalls. Recently, a writer from Los Angeles, Jill Gutowitz, shared her unpleasant experiences when taking an Uber ride. Through her tweets, Gutowitz brought light to a much broader issue that people, especially men, don’t often consider. The writer stressed that many situations that seem normal for man can be dangerous for women. Other people quickly chimed in with their stories and opinions. “I wasn’t sure how widespread the issue was until I saw how many women responded to the post saying they’ve had the exact same experience countless times,” Jill told Bored Panda. She continued on saying that the issue was not isolated at all. “I think sexual harassment in Ubers and Lyfts is part of a larger systemic issue, which is a culture of misogyny and sexism” she added.
