Women’s Experiences of Harassment in Taxis: A Case Study of Tripoli, Lebanon
Given the high global prevalence of men harassing women in public transit, this study contributes to the body of evidence around the extent to which men harass women in public transit in order to inform practical solutions. This case study was initiated by members of the Tripoli-based feminist organization Mosawat, which felt that taxi harassment is a significant barrier to women’s access to education and jobs. It was completed as part of UN Women’s Men and Women for Gender Equality project (Phase II), funded by the Government of Sweden, and implemented in collaboration with the feminist NGO KAFA.
