Pakistani PM’s ex-wife revealed she was harassed by an Uber driver and stalked for 2 years. Women in Pakistan are not safe as it is, but to have an important figure like Jemima reveal she was stalked for so long makes it an even scarier thought.

The Tweet

First, let’s take a look at Jojo Moyes’ Tweet:

 

I’m not sure any man truly understands how we absorb our fear from such an early age. I carried my keys through my fingers from the age of 14. I still dress from the shoes up, mentally calculating whether I might need to run.

 

 

To this, Jemima replied and wrote:

Yes. And for those lucky enough to be able to afford an Uber or cab when too sacred to walk- that’s not always safe either- how many times have you felt scared with a male driver? I had a cab driver stalker who harassed me for two years.

 

 

Jojo Moyes shared that she too was scared of using Uber for traveling. And Jemima further went on to say that Uber should have a service dedicated to women. Take a look:

 

 

Do you agree with Jemima Goldsmith? Should there be a service especially for women? Or is that a far-fetched idea? Share your views in the comments section.
