حول مشروع بينك تاكسي لرائدة سيدات الأعمال ريم فوزي…
تقول ريم فوزي ، مؤسسة Pink Taxi: “

لقد رأيت أن المجتمع بحاجة إلى وسيلة آمنة لنقل النساء ،

وبدأت أفكر فيما يمكنني تقديمه”.

CNN)For many women in Egypt, fending off catcalls and lewd comments is a grim routine of daily life.According to the UN, over 99% have been victims of sexual harassment which often takes place on public transport or in cabs.But a car service driven by women, and accepting only female passengers, is promising a secure way to travel in the Egyptian capital.Pink Taxi’s drivers take only pre-booked rides and know how to navigate Cairo’s ferocious traffic jams — clad in fuchsia uniforms nonetheless.

Secure spaces

“I saw that society needed a safe mode of transportation for women, and I began to think what I could provide,” says Reem Fawzy, Pink Taxi’s founder.Her drivers are required to have a university degree, speak English and have at least two years of experience driving in Cairo.Cars are equipped with a GPS and a camera, as well as an SOS button that can stop the vehicle and alert Pink Taxi headquarters in case of an emergency.The entrepreneur says that part of her motivation for setting up a female-only car service was to give women in Cairo more opportunities for work.”Women can’t find jobs easily, most of the private sector and business prefer men, and there are a lot of jobs a woman can’t do,” she says.

Pink Taxi's drivers are women and only accept women as passengers.
