The Lengths A Kiwi will go to Make A Point

My good friend Richard Gee in Auckland, sick of hearing from me how wonderful Perth was sent me this article that appeared recently in teh Auckland Daily Herald:

With the high rate of attacks on women in secluded parking lots, especially during evening hours, the Perth City Council has established a "Women Only" parking lot adjacent to Supreme Court Gardens near the Concert Hall. Even the parking lot attendants are exclusively female so that a comfortable and safe environment is created for patrons.

The area is extremely well illuminated to remove the opportunity for crime and presents as a model of what can be achieved when women are at the helm.

Below is the first picture available of this world-first women-only parking lot.
