I think I am far too detached from KL’s shopping mall scene. My sister was shocked that I was shocked to see this. Since when did KL become so sexist? Assigning all the parking spaces close to the lifts/escalator exits for ladies only.
The sister said it is for safety concerns. KL is getting more and more unsafe for females, with rape cases going on rampantly.
Well, yes, the concern is legit, we do want to keep the ladies safe.
What I don’t understand is, what will designating parking spaces alone do? This was taken inside Tropicana City Mall carpark. Besides designating parking spaces, I don’t see any increased number of CCTVs covering the area, nor do I see the presence of security guards patrolling the area. What is the point then?
I don’t know, but if I am a raper, I would see the designated Ladies Only parking spaces as my designated hunting ground. Why wait at other spots when I can wait at a spot with a full concentration of ladies to satisfy my carnal lusts?
I must be missing some point here…
