Chinese Women Protest Internet Subway Post

SHANGHAI, (UPI) — Two women protested a Chinese subway operator’s Internet post by carrying signs reading, “Just because I’m slutty doesn’t mean you can be dirty.”

The Wednesday post by Shanghai No.2 Metro Operation, which operates Lines 2, 11 and 13, angered many women and activists in the country by posting a picture of a woman in a transparent dress on the subway with a caption reading, “It’s no wonder that some people get harassed if they dress like this,” the Global Times reported Tuesday.

“There are plenty of gropers on the subway. Please pay attention to how you dress, ladies,” the post read.

Two women responded to the post Sunday by riding the subway with signs reading, “Just because I’m slutty doesn’t mean you can be dirty.”

“We will stage the same protest on the subway every weekend until the subway operator apologizes for its inappropriate comment against women,” said one of the protesters, who gave her surname as Fu.
