In case you missed it, there is a new ride sharing service in the US named ‘Chariot for Women’, which markets itself exclusively to female passengers, or males under 13. In addition, all the drivers are female.

Mia Freedman, Monique Bowley and Kate de Brito debate whether female ride sharing is sexist, or just smart.
