Women in Mexico are using black veils and public transit to send men a message about entitlement and sexual harassment.
Donning long black veils and gowns, a group of women in Mexico City rode buses and trains with signs that read "El Metro es publicio, mi ceurpo no" (the Metro is public, my body is not).
Harassment and violence against women has been a serious problem in Mexico City, which is why the city created women-only train cars in 2008. This recent protest was largely organized by GIRE, a Mexico-based reproductive rights organization.
The protest received some criticism for appropriating the apparel of Muslim women to make a point about oppression:
