The Taiwan Railway Administration (TRA) is considering whether to abolish its two-month-old practice of maintaining a "women only" carriage in every train after being criticized over the initiative. The TRA followed Japan's example and launched the special coach service for women on June 1 after an increasing number of women complained about groping in crowded trains. Although the TRA has designated the last coach of every train for women only, many men have refused to honor the practice on the grounds that all passengers deserve the same treatment. Some men criticized the TRA for "depicting all males as sexual maniacs," while others claimed the practice might be "unconstitutional."
