Two service stations in the Zhejiang Province area of China have installed women-only parking spaces, sparking a debate on social media.

According to a report on Chinese news outlet Xinhua, the parking spots are 50% wider than normal spaces.

The manager of one of the service stations is quoted as saying: “The women’s parking spaces are closer to exits and monitoring systems, which is more convenient for female drivers to take a break or go shopping in the main building, and much safer, especially at night.”

Some people have criticized the idea, saying it implies that women are less-skilled drivers than men.
