Today, gender-based social issues, such as sexual harassment, assaults, bullying, etc., are prevalent in both advanced and developing nations. The transit system has been identified as a hotspot of sexual harassment in many literary works. Today's mobility depends heavily on public transportation, particularly for individuals who lack the finances for a private vehicle or who are unable to drive. However, modern women are also venturing forth into the city and towns on their own for a variety of reasons, such as education, employment, and recreational activities. Although they use public transportation regularly, they are frequently targeted for sexual harassment. This article deals with understanding the prevalence of harassment among women travelers, their reactions, and their coping mechanisms.
