    I think there should be a survey done on what women are actually wearing when targeted by opportunistic rapists. I hope I'm wrong, but I have a strong suspicion that clothing and appearance has a large part to do with it. Having said this, I don't think they should get reduced fares, its not that big of a problem and it will put a major hole in taxi profits.
    The thing is, that's all there is, suspicions. It seems obvious that it would affect it, but things that seem obvious aren't always true.

    And even if you prove there is a correlation, that doesn't necessarily mean they are more likely to be attacked because of what they're wearing.
