The Picture that has Delhiites Debating ‘Ladies Only’ Seats

18 minutes
First broadcast:
Saturday 15 March 2014

A picture of two men sitting down went viral in India – they were plonked underneath a sign reading ‘ladies only’. Women-only seats and carriages are common in India, but there’s disagreement among commuters as to whether segregation will do anything to curb sexual violence in Delhi.

BBC Trending also speaks to the activists using Google Maps to scrub anti-Korean graffiti from the streets of Tokyo. Plus the team finds out why President Obama chose a comedy video series to try to boost the numbers signing up to his flagship healthcare plan.

Mukul Devichand is joined in the studio by BBC Reporter Mariko Oi, Rupa Jha from the BBC’s Delhi Bureau, and BBC Trending’s Mike Wendling.
