Self-dignified indeed

Self-dignified indeed | Globicate - Global Education for a New Generation | Scoop.it
THE picture of a young woman in a see-through dress was meant as a kindly entreaty. “Girls”, the accompanying text on Shanghai Metro’s microblog went, “please be self-dignified to avoid perverts”.

 

This issue in China raises the question, should the onus of preventing sexual harassment be placed on women?  The fact that The Shanghai Metro was insinuating that has angered some Chinese.  How do culture norms influence how we think about behavior in public?
