Last year I attended a conference at a nice hotel in a small Midwestern city. As I arrived and drove in to park my car, I noticed that there were a dozen or do parking spaces that were marked: “After 5:00PM, this space reserved for our female guests”. They were located very close to the front entrance to the hotel. At first I thought that this was very good of the hotel,, to be aware of the safety of the women who stay there. Then I got angry. This should not be necessary! The short walk from the car to the hotel should not be a dangerous journey. One sign of justice will exist when women don’t have to be on guard constantly as they navigate the world they live in.
