Keep girls safe! We need female only swimming lane!
I love swimming, but it is never safe for me to swim in public pools. For many years there has been countless reported cases of sexual abuse in the pool, women and children are swimming in fear. I have experienced those horrible abuses as a child in the 90’s and I cannot bear to see little girls today going through the same.
According to the news archive, in year 2017 alone the Police force had received numerous sexual assault cases in swimming pools, including:
4 Jun 2017 85 y/o Mr. Wong molesting 8 y/o girl (Tai Kok Tsui)
24 Jul 2017 50+ y/o man molesting girls 6 and 9 years of age (Tseung Kwan O)
18 Sep 2017 26 y/o Mr. Chong molesting 23 y/o girl (Ma On Shan)
Women who swim would know that sexual assault did not just happen few times a year, there are much more incidents not being reported due to the difficulty in catching the creep, that also explained why those men chose to make advances in the water. To keep women and little girls safe, the best way to go is to assign female only swimming lane.
What's more? Just realised Guangzhou is already having female special lane in public pools as too many women reported being strike by male swimmers!
I have written to LCSD last week, let’s see what they can do. If they remained uninterested to improve our safety I am going to need everybody’s signature. Meanwhile if you agree on this issue please like and share this post, feel free to comment and tag your friends.
