Penis Seats On Mexican Metros Are Highlighting Women Who Face Sexual Violence On Their Commutes

On a Mexico City subways, chairs have been turned into "penis seats."

The seats, deemed "exclusively for men," feature a protruding chest and a penis, and are designed to be uncomfortable.

The PSA campaign, created by United Nations Women and Mexico City authorities, say that the design was installed to highlight sexual violence faced by women on their daily commute.

"It is annoying to travel this way, but not compared to the sexual violence women suffer in their daily commutes," the sign under the seat reads.

The Mexican government says that 65 percent women in Mexico City have been sexually harassed on the city's metro system, AdWeek reports. In addition, the #NoEsHombres campaign reports that "9 out of 10 women in Mexico City have been victims of some form of sexual violence."
