Le sitel'idée

Adapté et marqué comme un jeu de mots entre le rose et le coin, l'idée est de concevoir une zone d'attente spéciale pour les femmes dans le système de transport public (stations et terminaux de bus, de train, de métro et de tram). La couleur rose étant déjà associée à la féminité, la campagne proposée va au-delà de ce concept, en sensibilisant les gens par le biais de graphiques visuels (messages écrits) dans des lieux clés de la communauté.

Exemple : 4 des 8 sièges d'attente d'une station de bus peuvent être transformés en 4 sièges roses, avec les messages suivants mis en évidence en lettres bleues sur fond rose :


Un endroit pour lui témoigner du respect.

Ou lui montrer votre respect. Donnez/Laissez-lui cette place.

Ou Réservé au RESST et au RESPECT.


Une campagne pour promouvoir l'égalité dans les transports grâce à TInnGO.

Le(s) lieu(x) pour l'appliquer

Dans chaque ville de chaque partenaire TInnGo, dans toute l'Europe.

Le coût

La proposition implique des coûts pour la conception du concept, pour l'impression des autocollants pour chaque site identifié et pour les chaises/bancs roses, etc.

An interesting idea but it brings up some issues. There are currently some  campaigns against gender stereotyping with  colour  (e.g. why are girls toys/clothes pink and boys blue?) - this gender stereotyping  makes no allowance for individual choice and is not diversity sensitive - there is plenty of research to support a move away from this.  It worries me that in this design idea women need to be 'segregated' on special seats to have respect - the segregation itself could be humiliating. There are (or were)  certainly 'ladies waiting rooms'  on some railway stations in the UK, (traditionally) but I wonder if they are now being rebranded simply for anyone.  However,  I think the idea of a 'quiet place' at transport waiting areas, is a good one that could be used by anyone needing to feel private or safe, older people, vulnerable people, people feeling unwell, depressed or tired, parent with a baby, for example.

Thank you for raising this idea. The concept of safe spaces in public transport systems is definitely one that requires further discussion and design solutions, however labelling them as pink spaces  perpetuates stereotypes and would not be an acceptable feature in many countries. I would would also suggest that solutions developed for this is idea incorporate an intersectional approach, i.e., what about elderly people, both men and women? They may also need a safe seated space.

Is the pink necessary to spread the message of respect? Is this only going to be targeted towards cisgendered women, or can it be adapted to include all genders (ie: non binary, agender, transgender, etc...)?

Why do people not respect women and other groups in their everyday lives? (is it a lack of understanding, or are there other resasons?) Answering that may bring us closer to understanding how to change people's behaviors towards those groups.

How are we going to encourage respect to be followed through after people leave the PinKorner? I imagine the PinKorner is only a starting point for women to be treated with respect, and hopefully the respect that is given to women there, can be shown everywhere, at all time.

In general, I love diversification of sitting areas so I think it`s a great idea. One size does not fit all! My question: what are the other (apart from the pink colour) distinctive features of the female area (in terms of design)?
