The city council of Istanbul accepted a resolution enabling female passengers to get off public buses at spots not designated as bus stops at night to ensure their safety.
The resolution, presented to the mayor's office, asks bus authorities to allow women perusing buses after 10:00 p.m. to get off near their destination even if there is no bus stop. Council member Esin Hacıalioğlu, who drafted the resolution, said the practice would minimize possible exposure to violence for women walking alone on the street at night.
The resolution says some 5,400 women were killed in crimes targeting females between 2002 and 2015. "Allowing women to get off the bus at non-bus stop locations would be a small step for us but an important move for women exposed to violence and sexual violence on the streets," the resolution said.
