In May, the city government started to paint 4,929 public and private parking places pink throughout the city, with thousands more slated to go under the brush next year. The pink parking spots, reserved for women drivers so they don't have to walk so far to work or the mall, are part of the South Korean capital's Women Friendly Seoul Project, an effort for the notoriously macho Asian city of more than 10 million to transform itself into a safer, more heel-friendly "space for women."


I feel like it would have been more efficient to ban women from wearing high heels, but I've gotta admire their originality.

They do tend to trip when walking over uneven ground...or pushed into uneven ground, as we have seen.

At malls in and around Boulder (as well as other major venues), there are spaces reserved for pregnant women. They're usually right next to, but sometimes closer to the door than, those spaces reserved for the handicapped.

We've got pregnant spaces here, too. I keep telling Katie she needs to take one for the team and get pregnant to save us 30 feet from our walk around the mall.

No luck yet.

Being actually pregnant only gets you a couple months worth of the good parking spots (you can't really use them during your first trimester because you don't look pregnant yet and other women will give you dirty looks). Plus afterward you're stuck with a baby. It's much more cost efficient to get one of these:
