Subway Etiquette Toward Pregnant Women


Tasked with a hefty work commute, New York City-based graphic designer Elizabeth Carey Smith conducted a four-month-long study tracking how often she—a visibly pregnant woman—was offered a seat on full subway cars. With her data organized into aesthetically pleasing charts, graphs and hard numbers and divided by subway lines as well as gender of those who offered up a seat, the results are really interesting with some findings more shocking than others. (Unsurprisingly the G train is the least considerate, and oddly the L featured the most chivalrous crowd of the trains included in the study.) [The Letter Office]
