Women only parking spots? This is necessary?
A mall in northern China has sparked criticism after it created special parking spots for women that are 11″ wider than normal spots, and painted bright pink.
The spots are deemed “respectfully reserved for ladies,” and although some appreciate them, others are calling the spots sexist and disrespectful.
One manager at the mall, Yang Hongjun, said that officials just wanted to make parking easier for women.
“Women make up most of our customers,” she said. “If their parking spaces are larger, it’s only for practical reasons. It doesn’t mean that women drive less well than men.”
