BBC Travel wrote an article titled, “Business Travel Gets a Female Touch.” It was inspired by an increased female presence in travel for business. Some hotels have recognized this increase, and have created “female-only hotel amenities and transportation options.” For example, one hotel in Houston, Texas, offers a women-only floor with features including yoga mats, jewelry boxes and a make-up kit.
I’m not sure that a women-only floor is absolutely necessary—makes me think of all girls schools—it’s still segregation, no matter your motives sand intentions. However, I do really like the yoga mat amenity.
Apparently, in Dubai, women can hail a pink roofed cab, to ensure that the driver is female. I’ve never had an issue with cab drivers, but that makes sense for safety…you, never know. Safety is a huge concern for women—I know it is for me.
